2018 (English)In: Religious Complexity in the Public Sphere: Comparing Nordic Countries / [ed] Inger Furseth, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2018, p. 137-191Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter begins with a presentation of the particular features of the Nordic media systems and their transformations since 1980. The following analyzes three forms of mediatized religion: journalism on religion (in major newspapers), religion in popular media (popular magazines and films), and religious media (religious programs in the public service broadcasting and the Internet presentations by the Nordic majority churches). The conclusions show no simple pattern of a decline or resurgence of the visibility of religion in the media. This chapter also asks what the media do to religion (mediatization theory), and concludes that the media genre has a profound impact on the representation of religion, which results in a complex pattern of increased diversity of topics and perspectives.
