    This study aimed to investigate the additive contribution of time perspective to the link between religiosity and psychological wellbeing. Previous research examined religiosity and time perspective from a subjective wellbeing perspective but failed to address these factors in regard to psychological wellbeing; the current study addressed this. A sample of 120 participants (39 males, 81 females) completed three questionnaires: Religious Orientation Scale-Revised, Zimbardo’s Time Perspective Inventory, and Psychological Well-being Scale. Hierarchical multiple regressions were conducted, revealing intrinsic religiosity, future time perspective and past-positive time perspective as significant positive predictors of psychological wellbeing. Extrinsic religiosity and past-negative time perspective were significant negative predictors of psychological wellbeing. These findings agreed with the study’s hypotheses and with previous research. Interestingly, with time perspective added to the regression model at stage 2, intrinsic and extrinsic religiosity became no longer significant predictors of psychological wellbeing. The implications, limitations, directions for future research were discussed and potential underlying mechanisms were explained.
