The aim of this article is to study the personal stories of female converts from Greek Orthodox religion to Islam as these are presented on the Internet. In particular, I focus on the way some Greek Orthodox women who live in Greece or who are from a Greek Orthodox background but live abroad are self-presented via a website authorized by the Muslim Association of Greece. The main questions are: How did these women decided to change their religion? What problems did they face in their effort? How did their family react to their decision? What kind of relations did they have with their families after their conversion? This is an attempt to find out how their digital religious identity is crystallized, assuming that internet, as a quasi-neutral and protected public space, provides them with the opportunity to narrate their stories and opinions without the immediate surveillance of the Greek Orthodox society.
