Abstract [en]

Within the growing literature on religion and media, a more specific debatehas recently developed in relation to the mediatisation of religion. TheDanish scholar, Stig Hjarvard, has undertaken leading work in articulatinga detailed theory of the mediatisation of religion, arguing that contemporaryreligion is increasingly mediated through secular, autonomous mediainstitutions and is shaped according to the logics of those media. This specialissue is the first extended discussion of Hjarvard’s thesis by researchersworking across different disciplines and areas of study. This introduction setsout the background and key concepts for this debate, discusses why themediatisation of religion debate is important for sociological and culturalunderstandings of contemporary religion, and provides a brief summary ofthe arguments of the individual articles within this collection.
