About this item

Vitkauskaite-Meurice compiles and annotates legal documents in Lithuania that impact Islam and Muslims in the Baltic country. The history of Islam in Lithuania goes back to the 14th century, she says, and the first legislation concerning it was in 1529. The existing legal regulation of the status of religious communities and churches is primarily based on the criteria that label religions as traditional, non-traditional but recognized, or neither traditional nor recognized. She covers the legal system of the Republic of Lithuania, relations between the state and Islam, mosques and other prayer facilities, burial and cemeteries, education, charity, the health system, employment and social law, Islamic chaplaincy in public institutions, the Islamic slaughter of animals and dietary regulations, Islamic dress, holidays and prayer times, and family law.
