    tour of encyclopedic breadth and succinct information on sacred sites around the world

    The great amount of material is organized for ready use in planning trips and for information on the diversity of the world's religions and spiritualities. The 1000 sites are organized by continent (with Antarctica absent and the Near East given a special chapter) with individual countries within each grouping; and following this, predominant, notable, or distinctive religions or spiritual beliefs of each continent are highlighted.

    After citing sacred sites in the Near East countries or regions of Turkey, Armenia, Saudi Arabia, and others, the historical and cultural significance of the city of Byzantium, later named Constantinople and then Istanbul, is highlighted, as well as the importance of the city of Jerusalem and the role of sacred numbers in the religions and beliefs of this region. Following the locations in the United States and Canada for North America, there is material on Animals in Native American Mythology. Sacred Nature is the highlighted topic for Africa; and Zen appears as a topic for Asia. The sacred sites for each continent are not restricted however to those in the topics highlighted. Sites of any religion or belief notable for any reason--architecture, historical presence, regional center, etc.--are included in each continent even if not representative of it.

    This is not a travel book per se since it does not include hours, facilities, and such. In many cases, such specifics of interest to travelers are irrelevant however, as in the cases of sacred mountains and public monuments. With the the encyclopedic breadth of the sacred sites (making it too heavy for portability) and the commentary on each of the sites on origins, history, significance, etc., along with back sections summarizing elements of major historical and regional religions and beliefs and a glossary of sacred terms, the volume is meant to inspire travel or give the armchair traveler appreciation of the sites.
