  Religiosity as Neurosis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In the bio-social development, mostly beginning in late infancy, as the individual inevitably encounters frustrations, disappointments, and delayed and unmet satisfaction of needs, both basic and higher, a capacity for frustration-tolerance, the ability to make assessments leading to problem solving, and the devising and execution of coping strategies are required for competence in living.
In essence, the acquiring of religiosity is both prompted by and enables the individual, otherwise seemingly mature in his or her psychological functioning, to make experiencing the world a fantasized or delusional reenactment, or both, of the dyadic infant and mother/father relationship.
Religiosity may afford a noteworthy degree of surcease; it is true, from anxieties, frustrations, and insecurity that dog one in the course of independent living.

  Religiosity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Religiosity is a comprehensive sociological term used to refer to the numerous aspects of religious activity, dedication, and belief.
But, and this is the importance of delineating the different components of religiosity, individuals do not have to score high on all dimensions or low on all dimensions; their scores can vary by dimension.
Koenig et al (2005) report that the contribution of genes to variation in religiosity (called heritability) increases from 12% to 44%, and the contribution of shared (family) effects decreases from 56% to 18% between adolescence as compared to adulthood.

 Increased religiosity in countries affects attitudes toward sexual morality, study shows
But religiosity is less likely to spur such disapproval for cheating on taxes or accepting bribes in public office, says two Penn State researchers.
Dr. Roger Finke, professor of sociology, says that religiosity, both on the societal and individual level, is far less likely to discourage thoughts about giving the government false information, accepting bribes while in public office, buying stolen goods or avoiding a public transportation fare.
The researchers' analysis defined religiosity not as a vague spiritual feeling of oneness with the universe but a set of beliefs and rituals centering on a personal, all-powerful and morally concerned God or gods.

 Dimensions of attachment to God and their relation to affect, religiosity, and personality constructs   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In this study we sought to address several limitations of previous research on attachment theory and religion God by (1) developing a multidimensional scale of attachment to God, and (2) demonstrating that these scales are predictive of measures of personality and affect after controlling for social desirability and other related dimensions of religiosity.
After statistically controlling for social desirability, intrinsic religiousness, doctrinal orthodoxy, and loving images of God, anxious attachment to God remained a significant predictor of neuroticism, negative affect, and (inversely) positive affect; avoidant attachment to God remained a significant (inverse) predictor of religious symbolic immortality and agreeableness.
These findings are evidence that correlations between attachment to God and measures of personality and affect are not merely byproducts of confounding effects of socially desirable responding or other dimensions of religiosity.

 Religiosity Forms New Social Conscience in Latin America
As a result of the new interest in popular religiosity, the Catholic Church is paying closer attention to the African cults and to the Pentecostals in order to learn the causes of their success.
For all this, there are a number of positive values in popular religiosity such as a deep sense of the sacred and a disposition to prayer, spontaneity, courage, cordiality and a willingness to share in happiness and suffering.
Such is the interest in popular religiosity that most of the local churches have sponsored conferences on the subject while the Chilean hierarchy has even opened a seminary on popular religiosity.

 eMJA: Hassed, Depression: dispirited or spiritually deprived?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In medical education and practice, religious issues are often marginalised or "pathologised", despite consistent evidence from the literature of the protective effect of "religiosity" or "spirituality" on mental and physical health.
The terms used most commonly in the medical literature are "religious commitment" or "religiosity", referring to the "participation in or endorsement of practices, beliefs, attitudes, or sentiments that are associated with an organised community of faith".
The negative attitude towards religiosity in many quarters of contemporary medicine and psychiatry is out of keeping with the weight of evidence which clearly shows that it has a beneficial effect on mental and physical health.

 ReCAPP: Journal Summary (February 2002): Reason for Hope: A Review of Research on Adolescent Religiosity and Sexual ...
In this report, the authors present some historical data on adolescent religiosity, set the context for recent research on this topic, discuss some of the theoretical and methodological issues raised by the research, and review 50 studies published between 1980 and 2000 that examine the relationship between religion and adolescent sexuality.
Although most religious scholars agree that religiosity is multidimensional (i.e., comprised of more than one component), few studies of religiosity and adolescent sexual behavior have used multidimensional measures of religion.
In one study, religiosity didn't predict frequency of intercourse, but more frequent intercourse was correlated with adolescents' decreased religiosity, suggesting that sexual activity may affect religiosity, just as the opposite is true (Benda and Corywn, 1992).

 NEL, Toward an evolutionary psychology of religiosity
In conclusion, we argue that human religiosity emerges from a cognitive interaction between these four domains.
Religiosity processes contingencies and enhances co-operation through social bonding, norm setting and cheater detection.
It fulfils those functions for which the mental modules of its four domains have evolved so that we feel it appears to be justified to attribute to religiosity the evolutionary status of an adaptation.

 AFRICAN RELIGIOSITY IN THE DIASPORA: The Caribbean Experience
To understand the nature of African religiosity in the Caribbean, one has to examine some of the African influenced religions and religious expressions that exist within the region.
Because African religiosity is committed to the idea that sacred and secular blend into one, it is not necessary for the individual to put life into different compartments.
Myths, legends, proverbs, symbolism of movements, of colour, of language and of objects are all part and parcel of African religiosity.

 CSCW Research   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The main contribution of this thesis, however, is its focus on the interaction of religious heterogeneity and state religiosity.
The main finding of this thesis is that neither religious heterogeneity nor state religiosity by itself predicts a high incidence of intrastate conflict.
However, when states that are religiously divided pursue policies of state religiosity, this heightens the risk of conflict.

 Religiosity and the Christian Faith
For whether it is in ourselves, or in mankind, or in civilization, or in America, that we are asked to have faith, the admonition always points to an object of faith which is less than God and which certainly does not deserve unreserved commitment or adoration.
The religiosity which seems to correspond to this combination of self-esteem and anxiety would seem to be a secular faith clothed in traditional terms.
The most disquieting aspect of such religiosity is that it is frequently advanced by popular leaders of the Christian church and is not regarded as a substitute, but as an interpretation of that faith.

 CESNUR 2001 - Social Perception of NRMs (Doktór)
Measurement of religiosity includes four variables: fundamentalism, general religiosity and to dummy variables related to catholic and protestant denomination.
Both general religiosity and fundamentalism scales are inversely coded (higher scores represent lower fundamentalism and general religiosity).
Strength of religious identification and the frequency of attendance and prayer, which constitute the scale of general religiosity are positively related to tolerant attitude in almost all countries, except Poland where the relationship is reversed.

 The 2003 CESNUR Conference - Religiosity and Education in Russia (Naletova)
Russian religiosity, therefore, appears as a broad phenomenon, broader than the official religiosity of the church; and the sphere of its presence in Russian society is broader that the sphere of churchнs official activity.
A study of religiosity among the members of the Russian Academy of Science in the year 2000 came out with the following result: 89.7 percent of individuals in academia identified with Orthodoxy; only 0.6 percent of them were unbelievers; the remaining 9.7 percent identified with other faiths.
Reducing religiosity to external factors (political influences, psychological misbalances, national pride or fashion) one risks substituting it for something that is not religious and failing to see its actual meaning and role.

African religiosity does not entertain the unimaginable idea that there is or could be more than one God that made the heavens and the earth, Who created the sky and the mountains, the waters and the light, the stars and the moon, Who still creates babies and heals the sick.
According to African religiosity, the loss of paradise, immortality, rejuvenation, resurrection and direct contact between heaven and earth was an ontological and not an ethical loss.
