The grove, a grouping of trees, intentionally cultivated or found growing wild, has a long diverse history entwined with human settlement, rural practices and the culture and politics of cities. A grove can be a memorial, a place of learning, a site of poetic retreat and philosophy or political encampment, a public park or theatre, a place of hidden pleasures, a symbol of a vanished forest ecology, or a place of gods or other spirits. Yet groves are largely absent from our contemporary vocabulary and rarely included in today’s landscape practice, whether urban or rural. Groves are both literal and metaphorical manifestations, ways of defining spaces and ecologies in our cultural life. Since they can add meaning to urban forms and ecologies and contribute meaningfully to the significance of place, critical examination is long overdue. The editors have taken care to ensure that the text is accessible to the general reader as well as specialists.

Located in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts on the island of Martha's Vineyard, Wesleyan Grove occupies a storied place in the history of the camp meeting movement. Shortly after the Civil War, Wesleyan Grove began developing a feature revolutionary for a camp meeting site: cottages (rather than tents) for those who were far from home. The plan and architectural characteristics of Wesleyan Grove were soon emulated by many other camp meeting sites (including celebrated Ocean Grove), and it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2005 for its role as a prototype for the permanent camp meetings popular in the late nineteenth century. In this 1858 volume, Reverend Hebron Vincent traces the earliest history of Wesleyan Grove and also includes a fascinating appendix listing rules for camp meetings.

LaMothe paves the way for new theories and methods in the study of religion and dance by critiquing and displacing a conceptual dichotomy between “religion” and “dance” forged in the colonial era that justified western Christian hostility towards dance traditions across six continents over six centuries.
