Bible gardens and Christian theme gardens with a didactic background are described and analysed here systematically for the first time.
Bible gardens are Christian theme gardens with a didactic nature, about 100 of which are situated in Germany, with over 500 worldwide. These outdoor installations use plants found in the Bible, plants with Christian names and symbolic elements to recreate Biblical texts and themes. Katrin Stückrath has chosen 26 German Bible gardens and studies the history of their origin. She analyses their form and function and looks at them from a historical, cultural-theoretical and theological perspective.
