Authoritarianism has played an important role in research on social behaviour being also related to religiosity which is a quite astonishing outcome if we take into account fundamental teachings of major world religions. Recent research shows that authoritarianism is moderately connected with religious behaviour i.e. the more people are religious the more they are authoritarian. The aim of the present article was to analyze relations between right-wing authoritarianism and religious involvement and religious cognitive styles. The findings revealed that the relationship between authoritarianism and religiosity is more complex than previous research and depends on the character of religious involvement and preferences in religious cognitive styles. High authoritarians tended to show higher levels of religious involvement in such areas as religious convictions, prayer, religious experience, and worship than low authoritarians. The first group was also inclined to process religious information in two styles: Orthodoxy and Second Naivete which demonstrates positive relations between authoritarianism and inclusion of transcendence and both literal and symbolical interpretation of religious contents.
