Description

This edited collection aims to examine religion across:
? historical media forms using a broad concept of «media»
? contemporary media with a focus on digital forms
? religious traditions
? disciplinary approaches
The focus here is on processes of mediation rather than «media» as such. Religion is seen as intertwined in forms of mediation that possibly transform religious practices.
Analytical insights from the field of media studies are brought to bear on religion in ancient media, such as ritual or early manuscript culture. Insights from such analyses provide a strengthened awareness of continuities and discontinuities between the (post-) modern and earlier societies to the study of current media and religion.
This book attempts to address issues of religion and media precisely through establishing a cross-disciplinary scholarly dialogue on the subject of «religion across media».
