dc.description.abstract Beginning the early 1990s the ways in which humans communicated with one another went through a rapid and irreversible evolution, based upon the invention and spread of the Internet. Reaching into all aspects of human life – communication, science, education and of course, religion – the structural changes that took place have impacted humanity in various ways. In Shi’ite Islam various competing religious authoritative sources have been created, and old ones have evolved to accommodate the newly free access to information made possible through the Internet. en_US
