Ever since the cave dwellers, we have honored and acknowledged our spiritual roots in stone, wood, and iron, constructing sacred places that reflect our faith and wonder. Provided in this reference are the world's most spectacular examples of sacred architecture, on display in hundreds of color and black-and-white photographs and illustrations. Istanbul's spectacular Blue Mosque, the towering spires of Notre Dame, the Temple at Luxor, Native American sweat lodges, and many other examples of sacred architecture are represented, with accompanying text that places each structure in its proper theological context. Natural cathedrals are also featured, including the stone circles of England's Lake District and the slopes of Japan's Mount Fuji, making this a rich and encompassing study of our most sacred places.
