Religious coping involves drawing on religious beliefs and practices to understand and deal with life stressors (Pargament, 1997). Kenneth Pargament has led development in the field and also helped to design a questionnaire called the "RCOPE" to measure Religious Coping strategies. This invaluable tool links psychometrics and the psychology of religion, and has enabled virtually all research in this area to be conducted. Thus, Pargament's work has set the stage for a large scale program of research on this subject: currently there have been over 250 published studies on religious coping.
