Description

Introduce, describe and analyze a sacred space of your own choosing (it would be great if you focused on California). WARNING: CHOOSING A CHURCH, SYNAGOGUE, OR TEMPLE is pretty obvious and makes for a very uninteresting paper. You will probably find yourself making a circular kind of analysis about its being sacred to a self-selecting group of people for whom it is sacred. It is far better to choose either a naturally occurring site or a built-environment that isn't a specifically religious building. For example, what about Mt. Rushmore? Uluru? Stonehenge? Mount Shasta? The list goes on and on.

Once you have chose, provide background and a description of the site. What is it, where is it? What is its history and background? How did it come to be sacred and for whom? What is the story of its being sacred? What rituals occur there? (Remember to cite your sources!)

This week, you turn in your first paper (anytime before midnight on Sun). Here is the prompt: Introduce, describe and analyze a sacred space of your own choosing (it would be great if you focused on California). WARNING: CHOOSING A CHURCH, SYNAGOGUE, OR TEMPLE is pretty obvious and makes for a very uninteresting paper. You will probably find yourself making a circular kind of analysis about its being sacred to a self-selecting group of people for whom it is sacred. It is far better to choose either a naturally occurring site or a built-environment that isn't a specifically religious building. For example, what about Mt. Rushmore? Uluru? Stonehenge? Mount Shasta? The list goes on and on. Once you have chose, provide background and a description of the site. What is it, where is it? What is its history and background? How did it come to be sacred and for whom? What is the story of its being sacred? What rituals occur there? (Remember to cite your sources!) Then, analyze the idea of this sacred space. Use the assigned materials or other readings, especially the Jeffrey Meyer chapters from last week, to bring some critical thinking and analysis to the site you have chosen. The paper is a 3-page essay (approx. 750 words). It should be double-spaced, well-written, and well- organized. Spelling, grammar and syntax (sentence structure) count. Obviously you may need to use other sources in order to discuss the sacred space you have chosen. As you do, please cite these. It is always better to use scholarly rather than journalistic sources. If you want help finding good sources or don't know the difference, be in touch. I will help you.
