AUDIOVISUAL MEDIA


From its very beginnings, film has treated religious topics in many and varied ways. Since the 1980s, the relationship between film and religion has been analysed by various disciplines, and by theology in particular; in the study of religion, examination of how audiovisual media can function as a mirror and as a motor of cultural discourses has been a more recent phenomenon. The research group Media and Religion participates actively in the development of this research field, with, for instance, the recently launched Journal for Religion, Film and Media.
