Religious Studies 360 - USA: Sacred Space in America
Sacred space refers to the structures and landscapes that communities hold to be particularly powerful and meaningful and are set apart from ordinary spaces for ritual use, commemoration, or intrinsic beauty. The most familiar sacred spaces are churches, temples, mosques, and shrines used in various religions. In a broader sense, however, sacred space encompasses memorials, monuments, museums, parks, sites of tragedy, and extraordinary natural areas. In this course, students will explore the conceptual foundations of sacred space and learn of the diverse types of sacred space found in the United States through various site visits.
