The Mosque: History, Architectural Development & Regional Diversity

The Mosque: History, Architectural Development & Regional Diversity

Presents an architectural overview of the mosque that traces its origins and development as an Islamic symbol, explains the design elements featured on structures around the world, and discusses how they have been adapted to suit modern times.From Library JournalServing as a place of communal worship and a focus for cultural identity, the mosque is the outward and most visible symbol of Islam. Within the context of an architectural exploration of the mosque, the 16 authors of this text have done an exemplary job of presenting and illuminating the belief system of Islam. One quarter of the book is devoted to explaining how the mosque has become the physical expression of belief in Allah and a signal of submission to Allah's will. The remainder examines the mosque region by region around the world, with particularly interesting chapters on the lesser-known mosques of China, Southeast Asia, and Africa. Copious photographs and plans are well integrated with the text. Highly recommended.David McClelland, Temple Univ. Lib., PhiladelphiaCopyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.
