This study is based on a survey which has been carried out to analyze the relationship among interpretations of religion and religiousness and it's dimensions. For measuring religiousness, the Glock & Stark Model and for interpretation of religion, William Shepard's Typology – which are appropriate for Islamic countries such as Iran- have been used. The study has been conducted with 707 male and female students of Tehran public universities in February and March, 2008. The survey has revealed that there is substantial relation between religiousness and interpretation of religion at 99% level of significance, so increasing or decreasing of religiousness makes different interpretations of religion. Moreover, there is considerable difference between secular students and other types of interpretations in ideological, experimental, consequential and ritualistic dimensions of religiousness. In other words other types of interpretations (Islamic modernists, radical Islamists, neo-traditionalists and traditionalists) have no significant difference in their religiousness.
