Vol. 52, No. 1: Special Theme Issue: Environments for Retreat and Pilgrimage

The experience of retreat—removing one’s self from the world, or embarking on a spiritual journey (most often in the form of pilgrimage)—has been a spiritual discipline for millennia. How is the experience of retreat supported through architecture and art? How can the creation of space and its adornment propel one on a spiritual journey? The first issue of 2019 will explore how environments aid and enhance the retreat and pilgrimage experience.

How should new houses of worship and existing facilities be designed and maintained to lessen or reverse the impacts of climate change? This issue will examine how faith communities might take action in response to environmental degradation, and the theology of such actions.
