Spaces for the Sacred free pdf This work examines the relationship between place, memory and identity, by bringing history, cultural studies, geography, various human sciences and literature together with theology and spirituality. Philip Sheldrake seeks to do justice to the particularity of place in its many dimensions, and to connect in an accessible style with ordinary personal and social life in the 21st century. The text should also help readers to identify and "position" themselves in relation to the places in their lives, and to open up new possibilities of inhabiting them. Drawing on a wide range of writers, from Duns Scotus to Simon Schama, as well as on poetry and his memories of his own childhood in Dorset, Sheldrake offers a way of meditating on the importance of place and places in our lives.
