The Atlas of Sacred Places: Meeting Points of Heaven and Earthby James Harpur, James Bremner (Editor)
The Atlas of Sacred Places visits more than thirty sites around the globe, from Mexico to China, Norway to India, taking in hallowed halls of temples and shrines, mystical mountains, and places of pilgrimage. Evocative essays describe the sites and explain the spiritual significance of each as well as its connections with religious leaders and holy figures. Color photographs and paintings capture the detail of cathedrals, mosques, ancient shrines, and their often idyllic surroundings. Location maps place each site in context, and special feature maps reflect the broader historical picture. A practical gazetteer helps pilgrims and visitors find their way and offers suggestions on what to see when they arrive.
Wide in its scope and colorful in its approach, The Atlas of Sacred Places reveals the holy places of the world. This is a book that will enchant and entertain, inspire and inform.
