Summary

Chapter 1 interrogates the concept of sacred space – particularly the sacred space that is associated with the burial of the dead. For whom is it sacred and how did it become so? Drawing on the works of Jerome and Prudentius – both of whom redraw conceptual maps of late fourth-century Rome in their writings – I consider the theoretical approaches to space and place of Jonathan Z. Smith and the environmental psychologist Kenneth Craik. I ask the question: How do we reshape the past through invocations of place and reorientation of space?
