Dr Robert Beckford examines the popularity of religion on the internet.

Every traditional religion and their denominations within has a web site as do a fast-growing number of individual churches, mosques and synagogues. Religion on the internet is second only to sex in terms of the number of sites and appears to be catching up.

Robert asks a podcasting priest, a blogging rabbi and an imam whether on-line religion is replacing more traditional forms. He visits the Iqra Islamic Girls School in Oxford, where he asks the students about their experiences. And Mogg Morgan, a practising pagan, explains how the internet has also strengthened the worldwide pagan community.
