Abstract

Examined the perceptual structures underlying the 15 religions most familiar to 60 middle-aged male Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, and Catholics. Multidimensional scaling procedures resulted in a principal Chosen People dimension in all 3 solutions. Other Jehovah's Witness dimensions were labeled Evaluative, Familiarity, and Ecclesiastical-Sectarian. Catholics used the additional dimensions of Church-Sectarian, Power, and Foreign-Local. The latter dimension was shared by the Mormons who additionally used Social Acceptability. (French summary) (22 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
