Annotated legal documents on Islam in Europe ; v. 3. 2214-1340.
This volume of 'Annoted Legal Documents on Islam in Europe' covers Bulgaria and consists of an annotated collection of legal documents affecting the status of Islam and Muslims. The legal texts are published in the original Bulgarian language while the annotations and supporting material are in English. By legal documents are meant the texts of legislation, including relevant secondary legislation, as well as significant court decisions. Each legal text is preceded by an introduction describing the historical, political and legal circumstances of its adoption, plus a short paragraph summarizing its content. The focus of the collection is on the religious dimensions of being Muslim in Europe, i.e. on individuals' access to practise their religious obligations and on the ability to organize and manifest their religious life.
