Religious separation and political intolerance in Bosnia-Herzegovina


Description

Velikonja sees the former Ottoman borderland as a distinct cultural and religious entity where three major faiths--Islam, Catholicism, and Orthodoxy--managed to coexist in relative peace. It is only during the past century that competing nationalisms have led to persecution, ethnic cleansing, and mass murder. Here, he presents a comprehensive survey that examines how religion has interacted with other aspects of Bosnia-Herzegovina's history.
