Participation Survey on “Franciscan Spirituality inspired Attitudes and Behaviors”
Dear brothers and sisters of the Franciscan family.
The open access journal RELIGIONS will publish in August 2018 the special Issue “Franciscan Spirituality and Its Impact for Today’s World” which is edited by P. Thomas Dienberg OFMCap. The intention is to bring together some of the most challenging and important aspects of the Franciscan Spirituality with challenging and demanding issues of the post-modern world. For that purpose we would like to add some empirical data and need your support for this survey.
Interested in the interconnection of Franciscan spirituality-inspired attitudes and behaviors with compassion, altruism, social transformation and responsibility in the world, we would like to continue our empirical work starting in Germany, and invite you to respond to some standardized questionnaire modules.
Participation is strictly by choice! The anonym information you may give is strictly confidentially and will be processes in an anonymous way (i.e., no names, initials, address, or other identifying variables). Professional discretion and data privacy will be guaranteed!
The questionnaire can be filled online:
• or we could send you the questionnaire on request as ‘hard copy’ (pdf or word file), and you can return the filled documents later on either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (+49-2230-623810).
We would be very grateful if you could support us with filling the questionnaire, and start a ‘snowball’ by spreading the information to other brothers and sisters of the Franciscan family. We can manage this task only with the help of all of you. – Thanks a lot in advance!
With greetings from Germany – pace e bene
