Some Aspects Specific to Communication and Religious Image in Christianity

Mirela Arsith, Daniela Aurelia Popa Tanase

Abstract


The hypothesis from which we start is that religious communication is prescriptive. Religion is a universal relationship, which is a conscious and free relationship of the human being with the divinity. Both religion and religious communication have an important role in preserving the social order "the possibility of predisposing people to exercise restraint and control” (Wilson, 2000, pp. 84-85) as well as the development of the personal experience of the sacred. For Mircea Eliade, the becoming and the growth of the existence into human being means being religious (Eliade, 1981, p. VIII). Religious communication can be approached from an interdisciplinary perspective, which values the religious symbols, rituals and attitudes. Prayers, rituals, rites, religious ceremonies are manifestations of communication with divinity. In the process of religious communication, there are coordinated interactions such as divinity, faithfulness, religious institutions, world, transcendental, texts, images and religious symbols.
