Chapter Summary

As the keywords of present day methodology seem to be triangulation, multi-method perspective, and connection between qualitative and quantitative approaches, visual sociology offers opportunities that were hitherto unfeasible. Visual sociology today offers the possibility of developing discourses different from the traditional ones. In fact, visual tools, from photography to videos, from documentaries to research films, open up new horizons for analysis, for which appropriate methods have been available for some time, and results that can be shared at scientific level. Religion in visual terms has become a way of expressing one's ideas through one's own visual production. Visual sociology must identify the added value it can offer in a world of images and producers of images, to come to terms with the issue of its competitiveness, not to be marginalized.

Keywords: religion; visual sociology
