Title
The Study of "Religiosity": Its History and its Future
Abstract

Dittes' distinctions of "inside" versus "outside" views of religiosity and unidimensional versus multidimensional definitions are useful for reviewing the empirical research. Correlations of religiosity with undesirable traits have encouraged the development of more precise measurement tools. Factor analytic studies have offered support for multidimensional definitions, which have greater explanatory power. Future research should explore religious behavior more intensively, rather than broaden the scope of phenomena studied.
