It’s the intention of the book project to seek unity in diversity.
It’s the idea of the the book, connected to address and emphasize…
the presence of Islamic architecture and symbols in Europe
the diversity within Islamic representation in Europe and
the fact that Europeans and European Muslims have possibilities and challenges in common – possibilities connected to the choice of life-style, challenges connected to the forming of identity
the presence of religious, ethnical, and cultural diversity and co-existence in Europe.
Most of the Muslims that have moved to Europe over the last decades are still trying to understand their own identity – torn as they often are between connections to European life-styles/countries and Middle Eastern traditions/cultures. At the same time most of the Europeans feel an urge to rethink their identity – torn as they often are between their national identity and the European integration on one hand and challenged as they often are by the increasing presence of Islamic culture and tradition on the other.
