Muslims and Others in Sacred Space

Margaret Cormack


The chapters in this volume examine different types of “sacred spaces” and the ways in which Muslims and members of other religious groups legitimize them and/or interact with each other at such real or imagined locations. The roles and identities of individuals considered holy (and why they are so designated) are discussed.

Keywords: sacred spaces, Muslims, religious groups, legitimization, interaction, real locations, imagined locations
