With the rapid population growth and the inevitable increased mortalities in Iran, the introduction of the automatic corpse washer in line with religious rituals has been a local response to the traditional burial process. This technology has, however, faced criticism from both religious scholars and ordinary people. The current study attempts to explore the underlying challenges of how the novel corpse washer technology finds its way into local communities. The findings point to the complex relationship between religion and technology and the invisible role of ordinary people.
