How do you define religiosity?
Is it attendance to church service that is required of you, following what the doctrine is saying etc.
Religiosity is the quality and the devotion to one's preferred religion.
I would mention, Cornwall, Albrecht, Cunningham and Pitcher (1986). They mention six dimensions of religiosity based on the understanding that there are at least three components to religious behavior; that would be, knowing (cognition in the mind), feeling (affect to the spirit), and doing (behavior of the body). For each of these components of religiosity there were two cross classifications resulting in the six dimensions according to these researchers); thus you have:
Although researchers have found different dimensions, ranging generally from four to twelve components. What most measures of religiosity discern, is that there is at least some distinction between religious doctrine, religious practice, and spirituality.
Religiosity is the noun that derives from the adjective religiose, which means excessively religious, so the definition of religiosity is very close adherence to all things associated with a religion.
