Abstract

A long history of intercommunal relations around local holy places in historic Palestine

precisely is the character of the attachment felt by local residents to sacred sites. Muslim-

on powers perceived of as resident in a site, and the nominal affiliation of these powers to one

however, a focal concern of the officiants of the respective religions who lay claim to the sites

2002 and 2011). I here investigate records of local usages of religious sites, largely rural, in

those which appear to be communally homogeneous, foreground issues of agency obscured in

those sites under the control of religious authorities.
