In this study, I intend to identify a possible way of gaining knowledge on the Romanian religious phenomenon. The scientific approach used for this purpose was the comparative analysis between two methodologies that differ first of all from the point of view of their temporal location: the methodology of the School of Bucharest and the methodology of the European Values Survey. The study includes issues related to the actual religious phenomenon: the perspective of the definition and the dimensions of religiosity, the relation between methodological holism and individualism established in the research, the relation between religion and magic. The main conclusion derives naturally from observing the limits of each approach. It is a plea in favour of gaining knowledge on the religious phenomenon using a different approach. This is not a compromise between the two methodologies included in the analysis, but is first of all adequate for the internal laws characterising the Romanian religious environment.
