BOOK DESCRIPTION
Each of the twenty papers presented in this book is a case study utilising archaeological research, or the results thereof, as a means of furthering our understanding of World Religions, and more specifically with regard to Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism. The papers can be classified under five broad headlines: sacred space; theoretical issues; iconography; aspects of a religious whole; and archaeology and the development of Religions.
