Philip Schlesinger & Michele Sorice This paper comes from the introductory work of the “Gruppo di Torino”, initiated by Infocivica, which has involved the participation of scholars from academic institutions in nine European countries. The aim of the Turin Group is to create debate about and interest in public service media and their future place in European societies.

Roman, Franklin Cornejo, Marta Kołodziejska, Xabier Riezu, Josep LLuis Mico, Míriam Díez Bosch & Josep Maria Carbonell One thing that is striking about the Catholic Church is its permanence. As an organization, the Church has survived cultural changes and varying political scenarios and is even now adapting with no major resistance to the new information technologies. Roman Catholicism still creates a sort of fascination and interest on the Net. Amongst the more enthusiastic forms of engagement that emerged recently in the Catholic Church, certainly the digital arena is one of the most interesting and is one of the prominent ways in which Catholics have found common ground to share and celebrate their world vision. The chapters in this book have been organized by starting with a common general analysis and ending with specific case studies from different parts of the world. The chapters of the
book cover a broad range of topics dealing mainly with the intersection of religion and technology from a concrete and delimited angle: the Roman Catholic Church.
