Society for the Psychology of Religion and Spirituality (Division 36)The datasets generated for this study are available on request to the corresponding author. Spirituality and religiosity have been found to be positive predictors of subjective well-being, even if results are not altogether consistent across studies. In order to test the role of spirituality operationalized as Purpose, Innerness, Interconnection, and Transcendence and religiosity operationalized as three dimensions of the religious identity: Commitment, In-depth Exploration, and Reconsideration of Commitment in subjective well-being, two path analysis models were run, one for each predictor. The models concerning religiosity were instead tested only on religious and uncertain, finding that the relationship between religiosity and subjective well-being changes across religious status. In particular, the main difference we found was that religious identity commitment positively predicted satisfaction with life among religious, but not among uncertain individuals. An interpretation of the results and their implications are discussed.

People of faith have persecuted or terrorized others who believe differently or not at all whereas people of faith have, themselves, been persecuted or terrorized by other religious groups or by those who deny faith. Incidents of violence, intimidation and cruelty along these dimensions occur daily around the world though only a relatively few receive widespread or global attention. Thus, it is not possible, as a division, to thoroughly and fairly respond to these many incidents.
