An aspect of cultural geography is the description and analysis of how culture creates generalized spaces or specific places. This session focuses on how the cultural practice of religion spatially manifests. Religion adds a level of intrigue to studies of cultural spatialization due to the mixing of the profane and sacred, the ordinary and the extraordinary, the physical and the metaphysical. Papers presented in this session demonstrate different approaches to how religion interacts to create spaces and places of ritual, symbol, and practice.
