Explaining different kinds of discourses and different principles, theories, and conceptual models of the society along with the role of digital media is one of the most effective tools of information and culture in introducing the political system of Islamic Republic of Iran which is a religious democracy. A religious democracy is one of the aims of this study. In this study, a role of digital media in discourses of Islamic revolution was identified with a descriptive method. Also, there is no boundary in the virtual space. Therefore, relevant articles and studies were published about digital media and virtual diplomacy during the years of 2009 to 2013. Also, some of the relevant scientific books were studied.
