In Cyberhenge, Douglas E. Cowan brings together two fascinating
and virtually unavoidable phenomena of contemporary life — the Internet and the new religious movement of modern Paganism. For growing numbers of modern Pagans — Wiccans, Druids, Goddess-worshippers, and others — the Internet provides an environment alive with possibilities for invention, innovation, and imagination.
From cybercovens to online Wiccan solitaries, and from Druid chat rooms to cybergroves where neophytes can learn everything from divination to spellworking, Cowan illuminates how and why many modern Pagans are using Internet technology as a platform for both the invention of new religious traditions and the imaginative performance of new religious identity. This book is essential reading for students and scholars of new religious movements, and for anyone interested in the intersections of technology and faith.
Douglas E. Cowan is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and Sociology at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He is the author of The Remnant Spirit: Conservative Reform in Mainline Protestantism and Bearing False Witness? An Introduction to the Christian Countercult. He is co-editor, with Lorne L. Dawson, of Religion Online: Finding Faith on the Internet, also published by Routledge.
“In the process of making a number of insightful comments on the modern Pagan community, in itself one of the more interesting of the Western new religions, in Cyberhenge: Modern Pagans on the Internet, Douglas Cowan opens a doorway on the still obscure and foreboding world of the Internet as a new lens through which to observe contemporary religion and a resource for research on different religious communities. Cyberhenge is a more-than-helpful guide to the spiritualities now imbedded in and continually reshaped by cyberspace, while heightening our self-consciousness about the very malleable phenomena we find there." - J. Gordon Melton.
