Sacred Places, Emerging Spaces : Religious Pluralism in the Post-Soviet Caucasus Hardback
Edited by Tsypylma Darieva, Florian Muhlfried, Kevin Tuite
Part of the Space and Place series
Though long-associated with violence, the Caucasus is a region rich with spirituality.
Based on fresh ethnographies and studies of sacred sites in Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia, Sacred Places, Emerging Spaces discusses vanishing and emerging sacred places in the multi-ethnic and multi-religious post-Soviet Caucasus.
In exploring the effects of de-secularization, growing institutional control over hybrid sacred sites, and attempts to review social boundaries between the religious and the secular, these essays give way to an emergent Caucasus viewed from the ground up: dynamic, continually remaking itself, within shifting and indefinite frontiers.
