Lecture: Boston's Hidden Sacred Places

What can we learn about spirituality and religion in the contemporary American landscape by looking at chapels and meditation rooms that exist outside of congregations?

Wendy Cadge, Ph.D., a sociologist at Brandeis University and expert in contemporary American religious demographics, will headline the third annual James Sawers Jr. Speaker Series presented by the Charleston Interreligious Council. This presentation will describe what can be learned about spirituality and religion in the contemporary American landscape by looking at sacred places that exist outside of congregations. In this lecture, Cadge will share how her research of more than 60 sacred spaces in and around greater Boston applies to other spaces with a spiritual mission within secular institutions.

This lecture is a series of four free lectures and workshops that are open to the public and will be held Nov. 7-9, 2019 at various locations around Charleston. Those of all faiths and religious backgrounds are welcome to attend to be part of the conversation.

For questions about the speaker series, contact Ken Fox at 843-763-3150 or SCKenFox@comcast.net. Please visit www.cicouncil.org/events for event locations.
