Synopsis

Part of the best-selling isms series, this is an easy to use guide to world religions. From the major religions to specific sects and denominations, it gives a practical introduction to all the significant isms that have shaped world religion. For each ism, there is a definition, an introduction to the topic and key words as well as suggestions of other isms that the reader might be interested in. The religions are illustrated with images of the art and architecture representative of the religion. In the appendix there is a glossary, a map of the world showing where the religions are primarily based, a list of festivals and other useful information. This book, with its strong illustrative matter from art and architecture, is a handy companion volume to the first two books in the series. It is also a useful reference for people interested in world religions.
