Abstract

This study examined the relationship between religious orientation and depression on a religious sample representing five major denominational groups. Allport's Religious Orientation Inventory was used to categorize subjects as intrinsic, extrinsic, proreligious or nonreligious. Depression was measured by Beck's Depression Inventory. Results indicated that of all subjects intrinsics were least depressed. No differences in depression were found among the extrinsic, proreligious and nonreligious categories. Religious affiliation was unrelated to depression.
