This article examines the content of violence incidents in Bosnia with a view to assessing the relationship between religion, ethnicity and the escalation into violence. I have examined incidences of violence where it could be argued that there is a strong symbolic content. During the Bosnian war, as the Slovene sociologist Mitja Velikonja has argued, even previous non-believers became attached to the mythologies and rites of particular religions.
