The original media used by religions were scriptures and books. Today´s religions movements operate predominantly with images that can be produced and distributed by means of electronic picture media, such as video and television, for example, as religious propaganda. The so-called “return of religions” does not necessarily mean that more people having become religious. Instead, religions have moved from the private sphere of personal belief to the public sphere of visual communication. They function as machines for the repetition and mass media distribution of mechanically produced images. The publication »Medium Religion. Faith. Geopolitics. Art.«  provides insight into the medial reproduction and significance of religion, in particular, its manifestations in geopolitical hot spots like the Middle East, Asia, Russia, the U.S., and  South America. It comprises scientific contributions by renowned theorists and a documentation of the exhibition.
