Our ever-deepening experiences with film and the affect of cinema in the digital age are changing the scope of how we read film religiously. This increasingly powerful engagement between representation and religion is the inspiration behind this special edition of Religions. This volume seeks papers from academics excited about film’s potential for expanding our understanding of the religious, and similarly the ability of methodologies utilised in religious studies to provide new insight into the cinematic experience. Articles that consider the interface of religion and film from any well-considered methodological perspective will be welcomed. This includes, but it not limited to, how we deploy trans-national schemas, paradigms of visual and material culture, grace and the moment (via Badiou), pedagogical approaches, new Marxist comprehensions, cinaesthetics, psycho-history, performance analysis, transcendental and cultural studies, and so on. We plan to make this an outstanding volume on the latest thinking on approaches to how religion and cinema interrelate.
