The religious world has always been connected with the media.
Historically, the emergence of new media has always implied
transformations in the relationship between religious sphere and
society, changes in how the followers and faithful of a religion profess
it and institutions carry out their practices and position themselves in
the public sphere (HORSFIELD, 2015). A few decades ago, research on
media and religion was systematized along two axes: the use of the media
by religious organizations and the use of religion by the media
institutions (notably in the journalism field) through the media
products. The growing contribution of academic research on religion and
media to innovative approaches as well as the new media and Internet
developments have shown that this binary perspective is not sufficient.
Digital media reveal that the religious and the media intersect from
several angles and in several areas: the reconfiguration of online
religious practices by lay people (SOUSA, SOUSA and ROSA, 2017; 2018)
and institutions (GOMES, 2010; CAMPBELL, 2020); the emergence of
prominent figures in the media that challenge religious authority (TUDOR
and HERTELIU, 2016; HOOVER, 2004; LOVHEIM and LUNDMARK, 2019);
the intersection between religiosity and entertainment (CUNHA, 2016);
the formation of new religious groups by affinities without the
mediation of religious organizations; the interconnections of the
religious with other social fields, such as politics and culture
(BRATOSIN and TUDOR, 2018); the public expression of religion in society
by laypeople on blogs and social networks (EVOLVI, 2019). This special
issue of Tropos: Comunicação, Cultura e Sociedade in partnership with
the academic website Mídia, Religião e Sociedade aims to host
theoretical and empirical articles related addressing the complex
relationships between media, digitalization, religion and religiosity.
It is expected to receive contributions that address, preferably, but
not only, the following subjects: Reconfiguration of religious practices
(rituals, liturgies etc) in digital media, Religious organizations in
digital media: projects, products, Creation of religious groups in
digital media; The religious authority on the Internet; Religious,
politics and Internet; Religion, entertainment and Internet; Religion
and games; Religion, gender and sexuality online; The development of
religious communities and identities online; Journalism and religion in
digital media; Religious conflicts in digital media; Spirituality in
online environments; Hate speeches, religious intolerance and digital
media; Fakenews, religion and digital media; Religious tolerance,
ecumenism and digital media; The circulation of the religious online;
Mediatization and religion / religiosities and spiritualities online;
Digital technology and the religious and spiritual dimension; Digital

Technological imagery and religion.
