Topic: Religion

Throughout this series, I’ve argued that socio-cultural artifacts have migrated online. One of the greatest socio-cultural artifacts of human history, of course, religion.

Faiths of all colours and creeds has seeped into the very fabric of the Web. It is practiced, extended and experimented upon. This fortnight, as the Christian holy time of Easter is celebrated by the faithful (no, it’s not just an excuse for a Bank Holiday), I’m looking at how religion is experienced online.

Topics I’ll likely pay attention to: technological extensions of old religions and the emergence of new religious movements; extremism; new forms of worship; the globalised faithful

Anything else?
