Topic/Title Christlich-muslimische Heiligenverehrung in Südosteuropa am Beispiel Naums




The PhD project treats the interreligious veneration of saints in South-Eastern Europe especially through Christians and Muslims. It contributes to research of the impact of Ottoman heritage on today’s communal life. For that purpose, answers should be given for why and for what goal there is an interreligious veneration of saints. Further questions are about the opinion of the local Christian and Muslim communities about this interreligious contact and whether there are consequences for the living together. The aim is to deepen the insights of the master thesis on “Interreligious contact of Christians and Muslims in South-Eastern Europe by the Example of the Veneration of Saints in popular belief” with regard to
- content: Emphasis on the saint St. Naum, who is identified with the saint Sarı Saltuk by the group of Bektashis
- place: the monastery St. Naum Ohridski and surroundings (incl. Pogradec and Korça)
- time span: after the Ottoman Empire, especially the present
- method: field research with qualitative interviews (in Macedonia and Albania during a field research period of eleven months) Theories of shared religious sites of Hayden and Bowman are an important connecting factor, at which saints are in comparison to the places a minor matter. The dissertation combines interests of the South-Eastern European Studies as area studies with theology, religious studies and ethnographic methods.
