Religiosidade em Portugal: caracterização, comparação e evolução

Translated title of the contribution: Religiosity in Portugal: characterization, comparison, and evolution

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



This article has three aims: to characterize religiosity in Portugal, to compare it with European countries of Catholic origin, and to analyze its evolution. The analysis is based on ESS, EVS and ISSP databases. Community dimension’s indicators are the highest and above average; belief dimension’s indicators are high or medium; practice dimension’s indicators are low or medium; religious norms dimension’s indicators are medium and close to the average. Overall, these indicators seem to be decreasing. Non-Christian beliefs are low and appear to be growing slightly. The practitioner type seems to be lowering, but not in favor of the pilgrim type, at least significantly.
