In particular this special issues aims to explore the relationship between online and offline forms of religious practice and community. Key questions include:

  • What is truly unique about the performance of religion online?
  • How is the practice and conception of religion online connected to offline practices, communities and institutions?
  • In what ways does religion online reflect trends seen offline in religious culture and practice?
  • How do these transformations connect with issues of globalization and glocalization?
