This comprehensive survey examines how religion has interacted with other aspects of Bosnia-Herzegovina 's history. The author 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 was only during the 20th century that competing nationalisms have led to persecution, ethnic cleansing, and mass murder.
