The Temple: Meeting Place of Heaven and Earth
With more than two million copies sold in more than a dozen languages, the Art & Imagination series provides illustrated introductions by distinguished writers and scholars to the worlds of mythology, symbols, and sacred traditions. This classic series has now been redesigned and reformatted for a new generation of readers, and it launches with the following four titles.
This cross-cultural compendium shows how the holy meeting place is common to faiths and sites from Greece to Mexico, from Jerusalem to Cambodia and beyond.
