Summary

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.

Jos Huls o.carm (1960, De Bilt, Netherlands) is researcher of the Titus Brandsma Institute. His field of research is mysticism and spiritual accompaniment. He is also coordinator of the projects Spirituality International (SPIRIN) and Spirituality Network for Education (SPINE).
