Synopsis

The Mosque is an extended meditation on a dimension of Islam unfamiliar to most Western readers. The Mosque Rusmir Mahmutcehajic shows, is not an analogue of the Christian church, not least because in Islam there is no priesthood and no institutionalized hierarchy. Rather, every Muslim is his or her own priest, and most religious obligations are performed in the home. The function of the mosque is thus dispersed throughout society and, indeed, throughout the natural world as well. Among the many victims of the Bosnian genocide were its mosques; more than a thousand were destroyed. With this book, Mahmutcehajic seeks to rebuild the spirit and majesty of each mosque that was destroyed, the spiritual grace it lent the Bosnian landscape.
