    Abstract

    This introduction illustrates the thematics of migration of peoples, faiths and the technologies and materials of religion. By comparing and contrasting old and new religions in a number of different Asian and Pacific settings, we highlight the tensions of globalisation and modernity - the challenges of minority faiths and religious institutions in dominant settings, the work involved in proselytisation, the imaginary and literal links among members of faith communities within and across borders, and the politics of religious adherence.
