    Abstract

    The present study tested the convergent validity of the Francis Scale of Attitude towards Christianity with measures of intrinsic and extrinsic religiosity. For 154 undergraduate students scores on Francis' scale were significantly associated .40 with scores on Intrinsic religiosity but not with scores on Personally Oriented Extrinsic religiosity (r = .11) or Socially Oriented Extrinsic religiosity (r = .05). These data suggest that the Francis scale might be viewed as a measure of intrinsic but not extrinsic religiosity.
