This sixth edition of BIGSASworks! brings together papers on diverse empirical and theoretical perspectives on religion and space from disciplines including religious studies, anthropology, islamic studies, theology, political science and literature. The articles give insight into the myriad ways by which religion impinges on secular spaces, on how religion shapes the making and perception of spaces and on how space is important in understanding the religious. The discussions in each article suggest that there are developments in Africa that need more scholarly attention and a closer investigation.
