    This exceptional reference book interprets the significance of the world's most renowned religious buildings, revealing their history and how they are shaped by the faith for which they were created, be it Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism or Hinduism. The historical range is huge, from the first temples of 9000 BC to the modernist religious architecture of today. An introduction discusses key universal themes in sacred architecture, while special 'decoder' features give detailed analysis of a particular building or decorative scheme.
