Abstract

A typology of religious experience was developed based on interviews (N = 45) with individuals claiming to have had religious experiences. Subjects' accounts were content-analyzed to extract the major attributes of the experience. These attributes were then factor-analyzed to determine the number of distinctively different types of the religious experience. A total of four factors were extracted, each descriptive of a distinct type of religious experience.
