Summary/Abstract: The subject-matter of sacral cultural heritage and sites, traditionally the subject of theological research and concerns, has lately become also the focus of anthropological and sociological analyses. The contributions of these three disciplines to the study of this problematic certainly can and should be usefully integrated into similar future inter-disciplinary initiatives focused on the safeguarding of sacral heritage. Approaches, perspectives and conclusions in the treatment of sacral cultural heritage in these disciplines have varied and provoked some sustained and enduring debates. The article intends to summarize the main trends and state of research on the problematic and discuss the latest legal and expert initiatives and documents produced and elaborated in the quest to identify and apply new instruments, strategies and policies to secure the protection of sacral cultural heritage.
