    Overview of Special Issue 

    Considering ones’ internal belief systems and feelings, it could be said that human emotionality has been a constituent element of religiosity and that the feeling of one sort or another has been integral to society and religion. The role of spirituality in religiosity, as well as the experience of the relationship with the Divine, has been a subject of various disciplines such as Theology, Religion Studies, Anthropology or Social Science in general. However, in the recent past, this subject has also aroused a modest interest in the field of psychology, explicitly investigating that religion may serve as a source of certain emotions and may also lead to emotional health. This also holds in the context of the current COVID-19 pandemic, wherein religiosity, spirituality and emotions are essential factors that influence the calmness of a person or group of people in coping with the hardship caused by the pandemic. Thus, it can be considered that spirituality and religiosity, which includes religious beliefs and practices are closely linked to people’s emotional experiences and wellbeing. Irrespective of religious affiliation, people across the spectrum of various geographic locations experience and express an array of emotions in their religious conduct, which is inseparable from a dogmatic or informal belief in God or the Divine.
