Media and the Mission of the Church

After Gutenberg offered thousands of people the possibility to read the same text in thousands of copies, and Marconi made it possible for a speaker to be listened by millions of people in very remote places, new technologies crowd at the door of the Church every day. Broadcasting religious services, growingly complex  and available web sites, mobile applications and softwares, etc. represent not only the chance of a new kind of Mission – more rapid and more efficient – but also bring about a series of problems of deontology and doctrine, which are rarely taken into consideration.

Where and when we can use these new media instruments in the missionary activity, are legitimate questions which the studies and research presented in this panel aim to answer.

Thus, those interested in the relation between the new media technologies and the mission of the Church are invited to take part in the scientific debates of the ISSTA 2015 Symposium.
