Research description:

PICTURE studies the usages of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), and of the internet in particular, by the priests of the Catholic Church all over the world. PICTURE does not intend to answer the question: how many priests do use ICTs? The research aims instead to offer a picture of which are the religious activities done by priests online, and which are their attitudes toward digital technologies. PICTURE studies only priests who access the internet, who are named in the following reports “ePriests”.
