ARH 444 - Sacred Space in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam

3 Credits

Students examine sacred spaces within Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and analyze how architectural elements-boundary markers, altars, Torah shrines, mihrabs-generate categories of sacred/profane, pure/impure, and inclusion/exclusion. Students employ interdisciplinary approaches from art history, anthropology, women’s studies, and religion, and encounter diverse communities in off-campus visits to churches, synagogues, and mosques.
