Tipos religiosos juvenis

Translated title of the contribution: Juvenile religious types

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The communication presents the main results of the multivariate analysis conducted as part of the doctoral thesis of the author. I propose a typology based on Catholic beliefs and practices and attitudes towards marriage, life and sexuality.The sample consists of college students. After applying the multiple correspondence analysis and cluster analysis, this has led to three Catholic religious types: nuclear Catholics, intermediate Catholics and non Catholics. Crossing these three types with various aspects of life, the nuclear Catholics turn into socio-centered orthodox, the intermediate Catholics become ambitious heterodox and the non-Catholics are converted into activists and hedonists unbelievers.
