The Muted Voice: Religion and the Media

Document Type


Publication Date



What is the difference between religion and spirituality? How does the media distinguish between the two? Or does it at all? In The Muted Voice: Religion and the Media, Michael W. Higgins takes an anecdotal look at radio, television, and print media in Canada and how they deal with the sensitive issue of religion. The book is based on talks delivered by Higgins at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax in 1998.


Originally presented as the Elizabeth Seton Lectures at Mount Saint Vincent University, Halifax, N.S., 1998.
