This study focuses the lense of geography on religion, employing three broad areas of inquiry, collectively termed "geographics," to encompass distinct, yet interrelated spatial dimensions. Religion-specific geographical sites or phenomenon are examined on both the literal and symbolic levels and on the level of prophetic and apocalyptic imaginings. The nine essays approach Judaism, Christianity, and Islam from each of the three spatial levels, looking at the Garden of Eden, Iranian pilgrimage circuits, Jewish settlements in Palestine, and others.
