 The article examines the impact of virtual reality on the sacred area of human life –
religion. The problem is investigated in two directions – introvertive and extrovertive
ones. The main features of the two directions are disclosed. It is found that the rapid
virtualisation of people’s social life contributes to the raise of religion and transformation
of any “profane” space into a “sacred” one.
Key words: virtualisation, religion, Internet, sacred, profane, identity, religiosity.
