Psychology of Religion (Index)

There has been some groundbreaking work done in recent years on the psychology of religious belief. This is undoubtedly a topic of perennial fascination. David Hume's work The Natural History of Religion is noteworthy in this respect. 

The contemporary research is different in that it adopts the tools of cognitive and evolutionary science. Using them to explore the mechanisms and origins of religious belief systems.
