A shrine, from the Latin scrinium (box) is a term describing a "sacred" place dedicated to a "holy" person or object or relic. In Christianity, shrines are commonly used in worship in Roman Catholicism (especially in South America), Eastern Orthodoxy and Oriental Orthodoxy. These shrines are often criticized by Protestant Christians who feel they can represent the worship of idols.
