Abstract

In Chicago, ethnic neighborhoods revolve around places of worship. As the ethnic composition of neighborhood changes over time, the sacred spaces may be shared by more than one ethnic group. Incoming ethnic groups also transform profane spaces into sacred places. Paper includes case studies of the South Shore, West Englewood, Logan Square, Ravenswood, West Ridge, and Portage Park (Northwest Side). More dramatic changes (except for Catholic churches) were found in the first two cases of the South Side and more sharing of sacred space was found in the three North Side cases. - (SLD)
