Next, I want to discuss various religious transformations in the information age from the viewpoint of globalization. First, regarding the concept of globalization: this expression is encountered frequently, but just as frequently with different meanings. Some use it to mean much the same as "internationalization," while others define it as a kind of "borderless" phenomenon. Roland Robertson has provided a fruitful definition for globalization in regard to the religious realm, and I must confess that I have been influenced by several aspects of his discussion on globalization in recent years. And I share Robertson's idea that the concept of globalization should be clearly distinguished from that of internationalization.
