dc.description.abstract The purpose of this thesis is to determine how values, specifically Conservation, relate to religion, between Catholics and Protestants in particular, and with spirituality. It explores previous research and literature, and seeks to understand how human values are related to religiosity in Europe today by focusing on socioeconomic variables and the participants’ self-reported measurements of values and religiosity. It also considers the history and significance of current values, as well as the social dynamics that inspire and shape, support and challenge them. Values, religion, and society dynamically interact, and this study attends to this relationship. Survey data regarding values and religiosity were taken from the European Social Survey 2010 and were analyzed using paired independent sample t-tests. All genders, ages, education levels, and income levels were considered. Regarding Conservation, there was a very significant difference between those affiliating with a religion and those not affiliating with a religion, and also between Catholics and Protestants. These results may indicate that while Europe is a post-industrial, post-modern region of the world, religion remains an important influence among many. en
