Shared Sacred Sites est un ouvrage tiré en édition limitée à l’occasion de l’exposition éponyme qui s’est tenue simultanément dans trois institutions prestigieuses à New York du 27 mars au 30 juin 2018, donnant lieu à une sorte de “pèlerinage contemporain dans Manhattan” :

• William M. Voelkle (The Morgan Library and Museum, New York)

“Despite theological differences, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam share many beliefs, rites, and symbols. These elements have formed a fertile ground for the sharing of sacred sites across the Mediterranean and Middle East. Instances of cooperation and coexistence among the three monotheistic faiths, and the study of such sharing, provide key insights into the ways in which tolerance and understanding are cultivated. We hope this project will demonstrate the potential for peaceful coexistence, tolerance, and understanding.

Based on historical and anthropological research carried out over several years, this project provides an alternative narrative to one-dimensional accounts of cultural, ethnic, and spiritual conflict. A primary illustration of effective coexistence is the extensive history of religious sites shared by members of different belief systems. Our contemporary world contains numerous cases of such varied devotional interactions that defy the inflexibility often attributed to religious groups…”
