Religion and Genocide in Bosnia
USF Libraries Holocaust and Genocide Studies Center

In this talk, Michael Sells examines the role of religious narratives, symbols, institutions, and beliefs in motivating and justifying acts of genocide and "ethnic cleansing," the possibility that religion can play a role in the post-conflict healing of Bosnian society, and the suggestion, made by influential Bosnian scholars and peacemakers, that the near destruction and remarkable survival of Bosnia offers both a warning and a hope for the post Cold War World.
