After clarifying what specific type of psychology the psychology of religion is, this paper introduces cultural psychology as a promising approach for research on religious phenomena. The paper distinguishes three variants in cultural psychology, reviews contemporary research in cultural psychology, and then turns to cultural psychological approaches applied in the study of religion. The paper points out the interdisciplinary character of cultural psychology of religion, discusses some current cultural psychological theories and their application to religion, and presents a number of examples of recent empirical research projects.
