1 Key Issues Where are religions distributed? Why do religions have different distributions? Why do religions organize space and distinctive patterns? Why do territorial conflicts arise among religious groups?
2 KI #1 Where Are Religions Distributed? Distribution of Religions Geographers distinguish two types of religions: 1. Universalizing religions- attempt to be global by appealing to all people regardless of location or culture. 58 percent of world s population practices a universalizing religion.» Christianity: 2.1 billion Christians» Islam: 1.5 billion Muslims» Buddhism: 376 million Buddhists 2. Ethnic religions- appeal primarily to one group of people living in one place. 26 percent of world s population practices an ethnic religion.
5 Where Are Religions Distributed? Branches of Universalizing Religions Three principal universalizing religions divided into branches, denominations, and sects. A branch is a large and fundamental division within a religion. A denomination is a division of a branch that unites a number of local congregations in a single legal and administrative body. A sect is a relatively small group that has broken away from an established denomination.
6 Where Are Religions Distributed? Branches of Universalizing Religions Branches of Christianity in Europe Three major branches include 1. Roman Catholic (51 percent of the world s Christians) 2.

13 Where Are Religions Distributed? Ethnic Religions Often remain within the culture where they originated. Typically have relatively more clustered distributions than do universalizing religions. Ethnic religion with largest number of followers is Hinduism. 900 million adherents Nearly all concentrated in India and Nepal
15 Where Are Religions Distributed? Ethnic Religions A combination of Buddhism (a universalizing religion) with Confucianism, Taoism, and other traditional Chinese practices is practiced in East Asia and Southeast Asia. Blending or combining of several traditions is known as syncretism. Animism is an ethnic religion whose followers believe that inanimate objects or natural events, such as natural disasters, have spirits and conscious life. 100 million Africans adhere to animism.
17 Where Are Religions Distributed? Ethnic Religions Judaism First recorded religion to espouse monotheism, belief that there is only one God. Contrasts polytheism- the worship of a collection of gods. Distribution 2/5 live in the United States 2/5 live in Israel. Christianity and Islam find some of their roots in Judaism.
18 KI #2 Why Do Religions Have Different Distributions? Origins of Religions Universalizing regions have precise places of origin. Often based on events in the life of an influential man. Ethnic religions not tied to single historical individual; often have unclear or unknown origins. Buddhism Founded: ~2,500 years ago Founder: Siddhartha Gautama Origin: India
19 Why Do Religions Have Different Distributions? Origins of Religions Christianity Founded: ~2,000 years ago Founding: Based on teachings of Jesus Origin: Region located in present-day Palestine Islam Founded: ~1,500 years ago Founder: Prophet Muhammad Origin: Makkah (Mecca) located in present-day Saudi Arabia
20 Why Do Religions Have Different Distributions? Diffusion of Religions Asia is home to each hearth for Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism. Followers transmitted the messages preached in the hearths to people elsewhere. Each of the three main universalizing religions has a distinct diffusion pattern.
22 Why Do Religions Have Different Distributions? Diffusion of Religions Christianity Hierarchical Diffusion Emperor Constantine helped diffuse the religion throughout the Roman Empire by embracing Christianity. Relocation Diffusion Missionaries, individuals who help transmit a religion through relocation diffusion, initially diffused the religion along protected sea routes and the excellent Roman roads. Migration and missionary activity by Europeans since 1500 have extended Christianity all over the world.» Permanent resettlement in the Americas, Australia, and New Zealand
24 Why Do Religions Have Different Distributions? Diffusion of Religions Islam Muhammad s successors organized followers into armies and led a conquest to spread the religion over an extensive area of Africa Asia Europe Relocation diffusion of missionaries to portions of sub- Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia transmitted the religion well beyond its hearth.
26 Why Do Religions Have Different Distributions? Diffusion of Religions Buddhism Diffused relatively slowly from its origin in northeastern India. Emperor Asoka accredited with much of its diffusion throughout the Magadhan Empire (273 to 232 B.C.). Missionaries sent to territories neighboring the empire. Buddhism introduced to China along trade routes in the first century A.D.
28 Why Do Religions Have Different Distributions? Diffusion of Religions Ethnic Religions Most have limited, if any, diffusion. Lack missionaries Diffusion to new places is possible, if adherents migrate for economic gains and are not forced to adopt a strongly entrenched universalizing religion. Judaism s diffusion is unlike other ethnic religions because it is practiced well beyond its place of origin. Other nationalities have historically persecuted Jews living in their midst because of their retention of Judaism.
29 KI #4 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? Sacred Space Geographers study the impact on the landscape made by all religions. Places of worship are sacred structures that physically anchor religion to landscape. Christian Church» More significant role in Christianity than in other religions because of belief that building is the house of God.» Church traditionally largest and tallest building in a community. Additional significance given to it by locating it in a prominent location e.g., square or center of town» No single architectural style Bahá í Houses of Worship» Dispersed to different continents» Open to adherents of all religions
30 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? Sacred Space Muslim Mosques» Space for community assembly» Not viewed as a sanctified place» Attention to cardinal directions is emphasized e.g., pulpit at end of a courtyard faces Makkah.» Distinctive feature is a minaret, a tower where a man known as a muezzin summons people to worship. Buddhist Pagodas» Prominent and ornate element on landscape that often includes tall, many-sided towers arranged in a series of tiers, balconies, and slanting roofs.» Contain relics believed to be a portion of Buddha s body or clothing.» Not designed for congregational worship.
32 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? Sacred Places in Universalizing Religions Cities and places associated with the founder s life are endowed with holiness. Not necessarily in close proximity of each other Not needed to be related to any particular physical environment Buddhism and Islam place most emphasis on identifying shrines that mark locations of important events in the life of Buddha or Muhammad. Pilgrimages, journeys for religious purposes, are incorporated in Islamic doctrine.
34 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? Sacred Places in Universalizing Religions Holy Places in Islam Holiest locations are in cities associated with Prophet Muhammad. Holiest City is Makkah (Mecca), birthplace of Muhammad.» Now contains the holiest object in the Islamic landscape al-ka ba a cubelike structure encased in silk that stands in Islam s largest mosque, Masjid al-haram. Second-most-holy place is Madinah (Medina).» Muhammad s tomb is in Madinah.
36 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? The Landscape in Ethnic Religions Ethnic religions are closely tied to the physical geography of a particular place. Hindu Landscape Hinduism closely tied to physical geography of India Solstice» Mt. Kailas is holy because it is home to Siva.» Holiest places are riverbanks and coastlines.» Hindus believe that they achieve purification by bathing in holy rivers e.g., Ganges River Special significance in some ethnic religions» Stonehenge is a prominent remnant of a pagan structure aligned so that sun rises between two stones on solstices.
37 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? Disposing of the Dead Climate, topography, and religious doctrine combine to create differences in practices to shelter the dead. Burial Christians, Muslims, and Jews typically bury the deceased in designated areas called cemeteries.» Cemeteries were typically only public open space in congested urban places prior to the nineteenth century. Cremation Hindus wash the bodies of the deceased with water from the Ganges River first, then burn them with a slow fire on a funeral pyre.
39 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? Religious Settlements and Place Names Most human settlements serve an economic purpose, but some are established primarily for religious reasons. Utopian settlement is an ideal community built around a religious way of life. Salt Lake City culminated the utopian movement in the United States when it was built by the Mormons. Roman Catholic immigrants have frequently given religious place names, or toponyms, to settlements primarily in the U.S. Southwest and Quebec.
41 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? The Calendar Universalizing and ethnic religions approach the calendar differently. Ethnic Religion Holidays are closely aligned with natural events associated with the physical geography of the homeland. Prominent feature is celebration of the seasons.» Closely tied to local agriculture Universalizing Religion Major holidays relate to events in the life of the founder rather than the seasons of one particular place.» Ramadan (Islam): part of five pillars of faith» Easter (Christian): resurrection of Jesus
42 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? Administration of Space Universalizing religions must be connected to ensure consistency of doctrine. Hierarchical Religions Exemplifies a well-defined geographic structure and organizes territory into local administrative units.» Roman Catholic Church created administrative units on much of Earth s inhabited land with each being headed by a leader who is accountable to the next higher-ordered leader. Locally Autonomous Religions Islam» No religious hierarchy» No formal territorial organization
44 Why Do Territorial Conflicts Arise among Religious Groups? Religion versus Government Policies Religious groups may oppose policies seen as contradicting their religious values. Religion is element of cultural diversity that has led to most conflict in places. Religious fundamentalism, a literal interpretation and strict adherence to basic principles of a religion, has spurred more intense conflict recently. Taliban versus Western Values Taliban s control of Afghanistan s government in the 1990s led to strict laws opposing Western values.» Western, non-islamic leisure activities banned» Ex: Soccer stadiums converted to settings for executions and floggings.
45 Why Do Territorial Conflicts Arise among Religious Groups? Religion versus Religion Conflicts most likely to occur at a boundary between two religious groups. Religious Wars in Ireland A small faction chose to join the United Kingdom when Ireland became independent in 1937.» 46 percent protestant and 40 percent Roman Catholic (2001) Roman Catholics have been victimized by discriminatory practices, such as exclusion form higher-paying jobs and better schools. Belfast, the capital city, is highly segregated. Protests by Roman Catholics began in 1968 with bloodshed of both Protestants and Roman Catholics.
48 Why Do Territorial Conflicts Arise among Religious Groups? Religious Wars in the Middle East Conflict in the Middle East is among the world s longest standing. Jews, Christians, and Muslims have fought nearly 2,000 years to control the same small strip of Land in the Eastern Mediterranean. Judaism: special claim to the territory it calls the Promised Land where major events in the development in the religion occurred. Islam: Muslim army conquered this land in seventh century A.D. Jerusalem is the third holiest city to Muslims, because it is believed to be where Muhammad ascended into heaven. Christianity: considers it the Holy Land and Jerusalem the Holy City, because the major events in Jesus s life, death, and resurrection occurred there.
50 Why Do Territorial Conflicts Arise among Religious Groups? Conflicting Perspectives of the Holy Land After the 1973 war, the Palestinians emerged as Israel s principal opponent. Palestinians viewed themselves as the legitimate rulers of Israel. Biggest obstacle to peace in the Middle East is the status of Jerusalem. Peace will likely not be possible, if one religion has political control over Jerusalem.
52 Summary The world has three large universalizing religions Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism each of which is divided into branches and denominations. A universalizing religion has a known origin and clear patterns of diffusion, whereas ethnic religions typically have unknown origins and little diffusion.
53 Summary Holy places and holidays in a universalizing religion are related to the events in the life of its founder or prophet. They are related to the local physical geography in an ethnic religion. With the Earth s surface dominated by four large religions, expansion of the territory occupied by one religion may reduce the territory of another.
