The forms of participation of the Catholic Church in Poland in the modern media space
Henry Jenkins thinks that the development of new media takes place according to theconvergence principle and that it leads to creating a new dimension of functioning in the social space. In this space the traditional media still exist in public life but they enter a qualitatively new, symbiotic relation with the new generations of digital network media. This process opens for the present public life’s “actors” a lot of new, undefined in their variety, possibilities for social and cultural participation. If creatively developed, these possibilities usually work to the benefit of those actors, confirming their importance and attractiveness and strengthening their social status. No wonder, that the Catholic media enter the new media space and that the Catholic Church undertakes actions in the area of popularization of the religious knowledge and the church institutions as well as develops its evangelization activity in the new on-line form.
