The Encyclopedia of Religion, Communication, and Media explores all
forms of religious communication worldwide and historically, with a
special emphasis on oral and written forms of communication. This
A-Z organized reference work analyzes how and why the world's
religions have used different means of communications.
From the presence of religion on the internet to the effects of
religious beliefs on popular advertising, communication and media
are integral to religion and the expression of religious belief.
With its international and multicultural coverage, this
Encyclopedia is an essential and unique resource for scholars,
students, as well as the general reader interested in religion,
media, or communications.
