What is an andesitic stratovolcano?

A stratovolcano is a name given to a volcano that has grown by progressive stacking of eruptive products (e.g. lava flows and pyroclastic flows). The term composite volcano is often preferred as it does not suggest that this stacking occurs in neat layers (i.e. 'strata' is a geological term for a layer of rock).

What are sacred spaces?

Sacred spaces are spaces that are set aside for a purpose that is not "profane." It of course depends on what you deem to be sacred or profane of course. It is arguable that a library is sacred to knowlege, a school room to learning, a chapel to prayer...

Of course sacred speaces in the conventional sense are generally dedicated to particular divinities. For example a mosque is sacred to Allah in a sense, although a Moslem would say that a mosque is not neccisarily a sacred building, at least some would. A christian church is sacred to Christ, and the holy trinity, a synagogue to Yahweh... A masonic lodgeroom to Jah-Bul-On or the Grand Architect of the Universe.

A speace can be sacred simply because it is put aside for a spiritual purpose. Or it may be sacred because it is in that space that some particular higher function is carried out, some say that courtrooms are sacred to Justitia - Blind Justice.
