The Lab Media and Religion is concerned with the interrelation between media and religions and their transformation. Thereby the perspective is a dual one: On the one hand side current as wll as religious discourses and their authorities are shaped by media. On the other hand side religious practices are always also media practices and religious identities are always media identities likewise. So, actors respectively groups present, discuss and organise their religious perceptions through diverse media (books, pictures, videos, virtual worlds etc.). In this sense religion is a mediatized phenomenon that is necessary to be analyzed in respect of issues of media communication.
