"Sacred Landscape "is a refreshing exception to this. Here is an author who uses scholarship and knowledge of the land to make clear and uncompromising points. Benvenisti has produced an important work of lasting by: A Sacred Landscape follows a year Thomson spent in Peru, but it reflects his work in the country over 25 years and spans years of Andean history.

His story begins with A Sacred Landscape book, an Incan site first reported in by Hiram Bingham, the American explorer who discovered Machu Picchu, and visited in by Thomson himself/5. "A Sacred Landscape " joins Thomson's earlier book, "The White Rock", in setting a standard on how to write about Andean archaeology in a manner that sells books and provides a glimpse of ancient Peru for the armchair traveler, serious tourist, and for those with a scientific bent.5/5(7).

From Machu Picchu and Glastonbury to Haleakala and Delphi, SACRED LANDSCAPE takes us on an unforgettable journey to these sacred spots. Page after page is filled with A Sacred Landscape book photographs and stirring prose from some of the world's finest writers and photographers, including Galen Rowell, Paul Caponigro, Art Wolfe, John Muir, and Gary Snyder to name a few.5/5(7).

Through the book, Benvenisti ignores, downplays, or derides Palestinian scholarship of their own I was surprised and bewildered at the extent to which Meron Benvenisti’s book “Sacred Landscape” served to reproduce the dispossession of Palestinians from what is now Israel while purportedly seeking merely to describe it/5.

Sacred Landscape raises troublesome questions that most writers on the Middle East avoid. The now-buried Palestinian landscape remains a symbol and a battle standard for Palestinians and Israelis.

" Landscapes of the Sacred is primarily a work in Christian spirituality, but it also ranges over religious traditions, literary landscapes, and personal experiences, illuminating a path to deeper understanding of the sacred meanings attached to places.

This is no shallow by: Landscapes is among the few to focus on what the garden means in the spirit realm Undeniably, Sacred Gardens and Landscapes is a magnificent compendium about a subject address by few writers: the mystical dimension of gardens.”5/5(4).

Sacred Landscapes therefore aims to analyse the complex links between landscape, ‘religiosity’ and society, developing a dialectic framework that explores sacred landscapes across the ancient world in a dynamic, holistic, contextual and historical perspective.

An Article By Alex Whitaker. The modern interpretation of what constitutes a sacred place is far removed from that of our earliest ancestors who lived in a world without cars, houses and motorways.

The former deputy mayor of Jerusalem addresses the transformation of an Arab land into a Jewish state from a novel perspective: geography.

How, asks Benvenisti (Intimate Enemies, ; City of Stone, ), did the Arabic names of mountains, towns, and bodies of water get replaced with Hebrew words.
