32 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.
33 Origins of religions Ethnic Judaism Moses Abraham Father/patriarch of Judaism arrived Canaan 4,000 years ago Judah one of Jacob s sons Jacob = Israel
34 Hinduism No clear founder Origins of religions Earliest use of Hinduism = sixth century B.C. Archaeological evidence dating from 2500 B.C. World s oldest major religion South Asia origins Caste structure of society Reincarnation Karma Many paths to spirituality & worship God (Brahma) Vishnu (Krishna) Siva Shakti
35 Why Do Religions Have Different Distributions? Origins of Religions Christianity Founded: ~2,000 years ago Founding: Based on teachings of Jesus Holy book: Bible Origin: Region located in present-day Palestine
36 Why Do Religions Have Different Distributions? Origin of religions Islam Founded: ~1,500 years ago Founder: Prophet Muhammad Origin: Makkah (Mecca) located in present-day Saudi Arabia Holy book: Koran Followers are expected to observe the five pillars: (1) repeated saying of the basic creed; (2) prayers five times daily at appointed times; (3) a month of daytime fasting during Ramadan; (4) almsgiving; and, (5) if possible, a pilgrimage to Mecca.
37 Why Do Religions Have Different Distributions? Origin of religions Buddhism Founded: ~2,500 years ago Founder: Siddhartha Gautama Origin: Present-day India/Nepal The Four Noble Truths 1) All living beings endure suffering 2) Suffering caused by desire to live 3) Goal is to escape suffering 4) Nirvana, a state of complete redemption, is achieved Eightfold Path of conduct meditation
38 Why Do Religions Have Different Origin of religions Other Universalizing: Sikhism Distributions? Guru Nanak ( A.D.) Amritsar, Punjab, India Holy Granth of the Enlightenment Baha i Faith Siyyid Ali Muhammed the Bab (1844 A.D.) Iran
39 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.
40 FIGURE 6-18 DIFFUSION OF UNIVERSALIZING RELIGIONS
41 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
42 FIGURE 6-19 DIFFUSION OF CHRISTIANITY
43 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.
44 FIGURE 6-20 DIFFUSION OF ISLAM
45 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.
46 FIGURE 6-21 DIFFUSION OF BUDDHISM
47 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.
48 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? Sacred Space Places of worship in Universalizing Religions. Christian Churches 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
50 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Ways? Bahá í Houses of Worship Dispersed to different continents Open to adherents of all religion Baha i Temple (Panama City, Panama)
51 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? Sacred Space in Universalizing Religions 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.
52 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? Sacred Space Places of worship in Universalizing Religions Buddhist Pagodas, Wats, Stupas, Gompas & Chortens 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.
53 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 Emphasis placed on identifying shrines that mark locations of important events in the life of founder Buddhism Buddha Christianity Jesus Islam Muhammad Sikhism Guru Nanak Pilgrimages, journeys for religious purposes, are incorporated in Islamic doctrine
54 FIGURE 6-26 HOLY PLACES IN BUDDHISM
55 Jerusalem Jerusalem is a city holy to 3 faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam
56 The Temple Mount Jerusalem, Israel/Palestine Temple Mount contains sites holy to both Jews and Muslims, including the Western Wall of the Second Temple, al-aqsa Mosque, and the Dome of the Rock.
57 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.
58 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 (Tibet) 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.
59 Hindu Holy Places
60 Why Do Religions Organize Space in Distinctive Patterns? Disposing of 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. Exposure to scavengers Zoroastrians exposed the dead bodies to scavenging birds on top of towers of silence
61 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.
62 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.
