A. Spadaro presents cybertheological studies as an attempt of thinking faith in the “net era”. Cybertheology develops the truths of faith according to the categories offered by web and digital world, in a perspective of discernment. This essay offers an analysis in a semiotic perspective; the aim is not to investigate the new matters, the new contents that web discloses to theological investigation, but to examine the possible form, the new pattern of theological texts in the world of new media. In Modern Era, theological development is indeed deeply connected to the pattern of modern treatise, according to what M. McLuhan calls “Gutenberg Galaxy”. So it may be possible to investigate web semiotics and new media innovations in contemporary theology. Can we consider web semiotics close to medieval quaestio? The semiotic side of this essay is developed following the works by U. Eco, J. Haiman, J. Derrida and S. Petrosino, while the theological one refers to the works by E. Gilson, R. Gibellini and A. Spadaro. At the core of this reflection there are not the categories or thoughts originated by the comparison faith-net, but the requests that web practises offer to theological reflection. Web galaxy may increase processes of inculturation and mediation, as well as can involve individuals that are usually excluded in the traditional theological debate.
