In a series of pioneering studies, this book examines the creation -- andthe conflict behind the creation -- of sacred space in America. The essays in thisvolume visit places in America where economic, political, and social forces clashover the sacred and the profane, from wilderness areas in the American West to theMall in Washington, D.C., and they investigate visions of America as sacred space athome and abroad. Here are the beginnings of a new American religious history -- toldas the story of the contested spaces it has inhabited.
Thecontributors are David Chidester, Matthew Glass, Edward T. Linenthal, ColleenMcDannell, Robert S. Michaelsen, Rowland A. Sherrill, and Bron Taylor.
