  1. I noticed this term was used multiple times throughout Stephen Jacobs’ article, “Virtually Sacred: The Performance of Asynchronous Cyber-Rituals in Online Spaces”. Also, I thought how interesting this would has come back up in article that we have read this week. It is crazy to think how useful the glossary has become because it can used later in other readings like it has come in the Jacobs article. It was interesting to see how Jacobs was able to demonstrate how we interpret the use of the Virtual Church and Temple by using “hermeneutic conversations between devotee and specific websites” (Jacobs 1108). It is up to our interpretation to make the website a sacred place of worship.
