oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Nationalism, violence and reconciliation

Volume 27, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



This article addresses the relationship between nationalism, violence and reconciliation in the Balkans, especially the former Yugoslavia. It begins by giving the historical background to the rise and development of nationalisms in western and eastern Europe, focussing on the formation and break-up of the Yugoslav federation. It then looks at the Serbian Orthodox Church's understanding of its mission in relationship to Serbian nationalism and compares that with the situation of the Russian Orthodox Church.
