Hammams and the hammam culture initially spread in Mediterranean and European regions under the influence of Islam, replacing Roman baths. The essays included in this original and innovative volume clarify that, from the beginning, the hammam ritual has meant purification of body and mind, has influenced human existence in various ways, and for centuries has appealed to the collective imagination of those, including Westerners, who came into contact with a refined and fascinating civilization.
