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 BosniaHerzegovina's history.
