Abstract

In their article “The Church of Fools: Virtual Ritual and Material Faith” Randy Kluver and Yanli Chen look to investigate the nature of the spiritual world created by the Church of Fools “from the other side” and explore the relevance of that world for the traditional conceptions of Christian spirituality. They explore the relevance of that world both to the traditional conceptions of Christian spirituality, as well as the way in which the attempt to bring traditional Christianity into cyberspace pays homage to the new world driven largely by the Internet. In an investigation into the “Church of Fools” experience, in which they examine the virtual reality portal provided as well as interviewing “Church of Fools” participants, Kluver and Chen focuse on the way in which the “Church of Fools” combines a material sense of spirituality with the Virtual World created online.
