Islamic Mosques [videorecording]

Cambridge Educational ; written and directed, Angus Skene ; producer, Catherine Drillis
Format
Video; DVD
Summary
The mosque's minaret: alongside the dome, there is no more familiar symbol of a Muslim place of worship. But not all mosques have minarets--or even domes. This video describes the evolution of the mosque, or masjid, over time and across cultures by using the mosque at Cordoba, Spain; the Friday Mosque in Isfahan, Iran; and many others from around the world as examples. Common elements like decoration with geometric designs and Arabic calligraphy, the place for ritual cleansing, the imam's podium, and the niche that signifies the direction of Mecca are presented, along with a capsule history of Islam's birth and spread.
