Heterodox, marginal, and largely ignored by central authorities, these practices persist despite aggressive, homogenizing nationalist movements. This volume challenges much of the received wisdom concerning the three major monotheistic religions and the clash of civilizations. Contributors examine intertwined religious traditions along the shores of the Near East from North Africa to the Balkans.
