Gratitude is a central concept in many religions (e.g., Emmons & Crumpler, 2000). Yet, psychological research on gratitude has taken place largely outside of the context of religiousness. In spite of this omission, there are many interesting questions that can be addressed by a psychological study of religion and gratitude. For example, does religion facilitate the individual experience of gratitude, and vice versa? What components of religion might be most likely to facilitate gratitude? Is gratitude the same in all contexts, or is there something unique about religious gratitude?
