The Internet as Transnational Religious Space
Faculty, CSU, Chico Comparative Religion and Humanities Department
The internet has been used as a tool to learn about religions from the beginning. However, according to Dr. Daniel Veidlinger, now there are many people throughout the world using the internet as a tool to practice religions. He tells of how people join together in online “churches” and attend these churches virtually. These gatherings of religious believers are facilitated through online video stream, audio stream. and/or written religious messages. This is not a strictly Christian phenomenon. Dr. Veidlinger provides website links for virtual practice of various religions – among them Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism. Join in the exploration of this new religious frontier.
