Summary
"This book addresses the major generators of conflict and toleration at shared holy places in Palestine and Israel. Examining the religious, political and legal issues, the authors show how the holy sites have been a focus of both conflict and cooperation between different communities. Bringing together the views of a diverse group of experts on the region, Holy Places in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict provides a new and multifaceted approach to holy places, giving an in-depth analysis of relevant issues. Themes covered include legal regulation of holy places, nationalization and reproduction of holy space, sharing and contesting holy places, identity politics, and popular legends of holy sites. Chapters cover in detail how recognition and authorization of a new site come about, the influence of religious belief versus political ideology on the designation of holy places, the centrality of such areas to the surrounding political developments, and how historical background and culture affect the perception of a holy site and relations between conflicting groups. This new approach to the study of holy places and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has great significance for a variety of disciplines, and will be of great interest in the fields of law, politics, religious studies, anthropology and sociology"--provided by publisher
