The Romanian translation of the Francis Scale of Attitude Toward Christianity: internal consistency reliability, re-test reliability and construct validity among undergraduate students within a Greek Orthodox Culture

By Leslie J. Francis, Dan Ispas, Mandy Robbins, Alexandra Ilie and Dragoș Iliescu

Abstract

In order to contribute to a growing international research programme concerned with the correlates, antecedents and consequences of individual differences in attitude toward religion, the Francis Scale of Attitude toward Christianity was translated into Romanian and applied within a cultural context shaped by the Greek Orthodox tradition. Data provided by a sample of 158 students (mainly in their late teens and early twenties) supported the internal consistency reliability, re-test reliability and construct validity of this instrument and commended it for further use in studies conducted in Romania
