Overview of Special Issue

The commencement of the global pandemic has created the world to face the challenges with uncertainties. In handling the strict contact of pandemic has been handled with strict contact tracing and quarantine rules. Although the use of technology has helped prevent the spread of COVID-19, misinformation from the internet has also brought about many uncertainties of the pandemic. Within an educational setting, the opening up of schools or conducting online classes has also been troubled with uncertainties. Issues from the quality of teaching to the medium of instructions have together highlighted the impact of global pandemic on education. In the worldwide context, the schools are successfully kept open with strict rules and restrictions; nonetheless, the anxiety and psychological wellness of individuals are still being affected.

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 emotions in religiosity and the experience of the Divine has been a subject of various disciplines, mainly of theological and anthropological investigations. 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 base within the context of the current COVID-19 pandemic, wherein religion, religiosity and emotions are essential factors in the coping process. Thus, it can be considered common sense that religiosity, which includes some kind of religious practices and beliefs, is closely linked to people’s emotional experiences and wellness evaluations. 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.
