What is a Mosque? (at Mary Winspear Centre)


Course description

Muslim communities gather to pray and learn in a variety of architectural settings.

The most prominent and recognizable structure for Islamic worship is known in English as a “mosque,” and as a “masjid,” a “djami,” or some variation of those terms, in a host of other languages. There are some recognizable features that typically identify congregational mosques, but interesting differences occur between urban and rural, past and present, and regional designs.

We will discuss the role and meaning of the mosque as a building type, and look at examples of mosque architecture from across the Islamic world.
