Abstract [en]

Research within religious education ought to place a greater prominence on the massive supply of knowledge, information and communication that the digital world in general, and the internet in particular, present. Solid education should be provided in a positive spirit, but with scientific methods for managing the new media. While it is essential to stress the potential of new media, it is equally important to engage in critical analysis and source-criticism of to the same degree. At Umeå University, Sweden, religious studies make use of digitised archival documents with this critical caveat in mind. The research methods are based on an interdisciplinary research environment with a tradition of focusing on the Christian cultural heritage.
