Digital Religion: An exploration of views and developments around COVID-19

Digital Religion:
An exploration of views and developments around COVID-19

The digitalization of religion transforms the way we practice, experience, and reshape our faiths. Furthermore, values that were once established by religions now seem to be adopted by neoliberal leaders carrying out the message of solidarity. This, while COVID-19 has driven a wedge between the collective we call Europe. Are we in need of a new collective narrative? And who should provide such a narrative? Who takes the lead within political and religious life?

Our EARS Whitepaper 2020 is based on the outcomes of three virtual round table meetings in which we discussed what consequences digitalization has for churches, individuals, and religion as a whole.
