There is a need for an international academic forum in the field of spirituality. Spirituality International (SPIRIN) is the construction of such a forum, using the results in the field of information and communication technology (ICT). Basically, SPIRIN is a web community in which scholars, lecturers, students and professionals exchange information and engage in discussion. SPIRIN is composed of six interrelated sections: Who’s Who, Bibliography, Forum, Encyclopedia, Education, Bulletin Board & Links. Of course, the members of SPIRIN will form the backbone of the academic forum: they are the ones establishing SPIRIN. The staff of the Titus Brandsma Institute (Nijmegen, The Netherlands) will act as facilitator.
