"...modern scholarship has comprehensively demolished the claim that the Islamicization of Bosnia consisted essentially of a mass-conversion of the members of the Bosnian Church. Some members of that Church may indeed have been more inclined to convert to Islam because of their alientation from the mainstream Catholic or Orthodox Churches; this seems psychologically possible, but particular evidence is lacking. What is now understood is that many factors were involved in the spread of Islam in Bosnia, and that if the special attitude of the Bosnian Church was a factor at all, it was not one of the most important ones. "
Islam Bosnia - - - - 1550 C.E. Malcom, Noel. Bosnia: A Short History. Washington Square, NY: New York University Press (1994); pg. 54. "Similarly, the idea that there was a massive forcible conversion of Bosnians in the early years after the conquest is obviously false: the process of conversion was slow at the outset and took many generations. Although we lack the sort of personal testimony which would tell us how and why individuals decided to convert, we do have occasional comments, such as that of the monk mentioned above, indicating that people made the change of religion voluntarily.
