Saints and Sinners: Women and Religion in the Medieval World. 5 Units. This was done by a college student, and you can see sometimes people are very literal about how they think about God, and sometimes it becomes a very abstract concept. Moreover, can science say anything meaningful about prayer? Diener and Seligman found that statistically controlling for social relationships eliminates the association between religiosity and well-being.
