Aesthetics and the Dimensions of the Senses

The Online - Heidelberg Journal of Religions on the Internet has published a special issue on Aesthetics and the Dimensions of the Senses, edited by Simone Heidbrink and Nadja Miczek. During the last years with its rapid technological developments applications like online social networks or virtual 3D worlds have been gaining more and more popularity also for religious actors. When analysing religions on the Internet many academic researchers have until today drawn their attention mainly on questions like: if we look at religious web content, what are we actually seeing? And how can we interpret this? May I limit my analysis to the textual components? Or should I include pictures, music etc.? Do I have to include background colour, navigation etc, in my analysis? In an attempt to rethink these questions the editors decided to set up a special issue of this Online Journal which is dedicated to aesthetics and the sensual dimensions of religions on the Internet.
