This project seeks to examine whether it is possible to understand the religious society Jehovah’s Witnesses as a place as the term is used in the human geography. This interest originates from our motivation to find out whether it is possible to study religious societies in a geographical manner. With a phenomenological approach this data is collected by semi structured interviews and a smaller ethnographic field study. We will present how the term place is understood in the human geography in a classical sense. In that way we can analyze whether the theoretical understanding of place matches how the members of Jehovah’s Witnesses experience the religious society. We can draw the conclusion that these understandings match.
