Multifaith Spaces : History, Development, Design and Practice, Paperback / softback Book

Multifaith Spaces : History, Development, Design and Practice Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Multifaith spaces reflect the diversity of the modern world and enable a connection between individuals from different religious backgrounds.

These spaces also highlight the complex and sensitive areas of political and social debates regarding the emergence of densely urbanised populations.

They hold the potential to encourage connection and dialogue between members of different communities, promoting empathy, community and shared activity for the betterment of society.

This book explores the history, development, design and practicalities of multifaith spaces from the early shared religious buildings that had to cater for two or more faiths, to the shared multifaith spaces of modern secular locations such as universities, airports and hospitals.

Terry Biddington looks at the architectural, theological, social, legal and practical complexities that arise from the development and use of such spaces.

The book also draws together research to enable further development of multifaith spaces.
