The Transcendent Standard: The Religious Ethos of the Rural Elderly.
Tellis-Nayak, V.
Gerontologist, v22 n4 p359-63 Aug 1982
Measured the degree of religious commitment of rural elderly (N=259) and the contribution religion makes to their feelings of loneliness, anxiety about death, meaning in life, and well-being. Found religious commitment among the elderly to be the result of a cognitive attempt on their part to render the world intelligible. (Author/RC)
