Description

This book presents legal perspectives on the most important sacred places of the Mediterranean. The authors discuss the notion of sacred places in anthropological, sociological and legal studies, provide an overview of existing legal approaches to their protection and consider the meaning of sacred places in Jewish, Christian and Islamic thought.
The book concludes with detailed analysis of the legal status of key sacred places and a set of legal principles to support a general framework within which specific legal measures can be implemented.
