Vol. 50, No. 1: Special Theme Issue: Displacement, Safety, Security

Sacred spaces and places have for millennia been the targets of man-made and natural disasters; our own age has been marked by tragedies at religious buildings and sites around the world.

This issue will explore the possibilities, techniques, and practices to create safe and secure sacred places and spaces that respond to upheavals in our contemporary world.
