While the particular aspects of faith vary from culture to culture, the basic desire for religion seems universal. "The Historical Atlas of Religions" offers insight into how different cultures' beliefs evolved, how their influence spread, and where they came into conflict with each other. Written in a clear, unbiased manner, this book strives to put each religion into its own individual context. Beautifully illustrated, the "Historical Atlas of Religions" clearly shows how religions developed within and spread across geographical boundaries. Specially commissioned maps explain the origins and spread of different beliefs, and a timeline shows parallel thinking of various religions in different regions of the world. Special sections on conflicts discuss the friction between religious groups in the world today.
