Abstract:     
This cross-national preliminary study examines the impact of religious factors, personal income and internet saavyness on E-religion infrastructure and use. Data from a set of more than 40 nations involving close to 8000 web sites were gathered to allow analysis of factors responsible for the infrastructure development and use. Results suggest that i) religious beliefs but not practices stimulate E-religion infrastructure development and ii) religious beliefs and personal wealth contribute to more E-religion use (or E-Religiosity).
