METHODS AND MATERIALS Intrinsic, Extrinsic, and Quest Religious Orientation Scales, Scale of Fundamentalism—abridgment, demographic data questionnaire, Scharfetter’s questionnaire of ego psychopathology, Paranoid-Depersivity Scale—abridgment, and Frankfurt Self-feeling Scale—abridgment were used in the study. 120 adults of both sexes, 60 patients with diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia (F20.0 according to ICD-10 and DCR-10) in diagnostic group and 60 healthy persons, were studied. Groups were similar in sex, abode, education, civil state, the terms of age, and denomination. 3. RESULTS It was noticed that: (1) various correlations manifest between religiousness and demographic data in both group—distinctive in each group, (2) various correlations manifest between religiousness and psychopathology in both groups—distinctive in each group; (3) patients diagnosed as having paranoid schizophrenia have significantly higher level of intrinsic, extrinsic, with its dimensions, dimension of quest religiousness and fundamentalism than healthy individuals. 4. CONCLUSIONS Intrinsic, extrinsic, with its dimensions, and quest, with its dimensions, religiousness, and fundamentalism correlate with demographic data and psychopathology in both groups in different way. Patients diagnosed as having paranoid schizophrenia have a significant higher level of intrinsic, extrinsic, with its dimensions, and dimension of quest religiousness and fundamentalism than healthy individuals. The knowledge about religiousness of schizophrenia patients can be important for diagnostic and therapeutic processes of the disorder.
