THE SPIRIT OF SPACE: THE PSYCHOLOGICAL LANGUAGE OF RELIGIOUS SPACES

Abstract

Author(s): Selahattin YAKUT, Abdulkadir DNDAR

Spaces are like artists performing brush strokes through colors with psychological codes on human spirit. These strokes adorning the human spirit in a canvas pattern are reflected sometimes either as excitement, admiration, longing or as grief, stress and anxiety in our psycho-social world. The most important factor that builds this emotional atmosphere is positive/negative meanings given to the space. It could be envisaged that religious spaces associated with the Sacred Being will be reflected as a richer emotional content in the psycho-social world of human. These places, which host the relationship established at the level of consciousness with an infinite powerful and powerful Being, have always been places of importance in terms of nurturing the feelings of respect and fear in human beings towards the Holy and being a source for the deepening of the feelings. In this context, the aim of our study is to interpret the potential effect of spaces such as hadjes, mosques, prayer rooms, shrines symbolizing the religion and places like cemetery on human spirit in various forms and tones. As a result of our research in which the documentation method was adopted; It is possible to state that spaces have positive / negative effect potentials on people's psycho-social worlds and especially the effects of religious spaces are felt more strongly by people.
