Religion and the Politics of Identity in Kosovo
C. Hurst, 2000 - 238 pages
Kosovo is a frontier society where two Balkan nations, Albanian and Serb, as well as two religions, Islam and Christianity, clash. This rift has often been perceived as a hard and fast line of division, but the area also has a history of co-existence across these boundaries, through cultural contact, religious exchange and conversion. The tension between conflict and symbiosis lies at the core of this text, which contains seven case studies of various ethnic and religious groups, each of which examines how religion - Islam, Roman Catholicism or Eastern Orthodox - shapes their efforts to construct or reconstruct their identities.
