Sharing the Holy Land

Les 12 et 13 juin prochains, se tiendra à Londres, au Warburg Institute, un colloque intitulé Sharing the Holy Land : Perceptions of shared sacred space in the Medieval and Early Modern Mediterranean.


La problématique de ce colloque porte donc essentiellement sur la question des sanctuaires et des lieux de culte “partagés” entre plusieurs religions: judaïsme, christianisme et islam.
