The Religious Architecture of Islam is a wide-ranging multi-author study of the architectural traditions associated with the religion of Islam across the globe. Essays both address major themes across the history of Islamic architecture and provide more focused studies of developments unique to specific regions and historical periods. The essays cover the history of Islamic religious architecture broadly defined, including mosques, madrasas, saints' shrines, and funerary architecture. The Religious Architecture of Islam both provides an introduction to the history of Islamic architecture and reflects the most recent scholarship within the field.
