This chapter presents a psychological profile of the Order of Christ Sophia (OCS). The study was designed to add to the body of empirical research to promote a better understanding of the psychological effects of membership in new religious movements (NRMs). Because the Order of Christ Sophia has not previously been empirically studied, it offers new information and an alternative perspective to the available research. The chapter includes the use of measures found in prior research on NRMs to allow for direct comparisons between OCS members and participants in other NRMs.

Keywords:   Order of Christ Sophia, new religious movements, empirical research, psychological profile
