Informations and abstract

Keywords: Psychology of religion, religious, spiritual, attitude, questionnaire

The article describes a new questionnaire for evaluating the attitude towards religion, arranged in three scales of 5 items each, which refer to the attitude towards religiosity, the second scale to the attitude towards the secular position and the third scale to the attitude towards spirituality. The validity of this tool was analysed on a sample of 607 people with an average age of 33 years, 11 months, while the converging and discriminating validity was analysed on a sample of 471 people with an average age of 28 years, 3 months. The tool shows sufficient internal reliability and good overall reliability with respect to four similar tools. The tool distinguishes between atheists, agnostics and believers (both practicing and non-practicing).
