Technology Transforming Faith

Todays‘ technologies tend to convey security and confidence rather than functional transparency. It is strongly connected to mechanisms of faith and religion. Current societies particularly those bound by faith traditions, like Catholicism or Islam, have failed to adapt to a modern understanding. Despite the observed secularisation, there seems to be a general urge to individually define religion. Hence, we are not facing the extinction of religion, but its transformation.
