Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

While Washington, D.C., is clearly the axis mundi of political power, religion professor Jeffrey F. Meyer believes it is also a national symbol of America's religious consciousness. In Myths in Stone: Religious Dimensions of Washington, D.C., Meyer takes readers on a tour of the nation's capital, discussing the sacred aspects of sites such as the Capitol Building, the Washington Memorial, the White House and Arlington Cemetery. This is a detailed, well argued, impeccably researched study that will be of interest to both the spiritual traveler and the professional historian.
Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.


"The best exploration of the religious significance of the monuments and memorials in Washington. [An] excellent book."--"Charlotte Observer

By Sherry Austin on June 30, 2002
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Who would have thought of Washington, D.C. as a spiritual destination? You will think so after reading this rich, soulful guidebook to the capital's architectural idiosyncrasies. This author, whom I find more inspiring and much more readable than mythologist Joseph Campbell, escorts the reader on a journey to the mythic center of what Lincoln called "the last great hope of mankind." What better time in our history to visit and revisit it as sacred space. In the words of the author, "to visit Washington is to experience the retelling of a story of mythic proportions." The conclusions Meyer draws from his epiphany, described in the chapter entitled "Reflections," are alone worth the price of the book.
