Abstract and Keywords

This article on the Internet and religion emphasises the capacity of the former to transform religion in the areas of representation and adherent networking as a proselytising tool. This is happening to such an extent that some belief systems and practices may already be dependent on search-engine ratings and placement ‘to acquire and maintain an impact or profile’. For this reason and others – motivations can vary – religious organisations are increasingly becoming keen media and service providers.

Keywords: Internet, cyberspace, religion, belief systems, search-engine ratings, service providers
