The present study aims to examine the relationship between personality traits, God imageand religious coping (RC) among Roman Catholics in Latvia. There were336respondents, aged18 ‒ 86. We applied the Brief (RCOPE), God Image Scale (GIS), Latvian Personality Inventory(LPAv-3), The Centrality of Religiosity Scale CRS-5, including demographic data. The resultsshowed positive correlation between Neuroticism and negative RC, butnegative correlation with positive RC. Such personality traits as Openness, Conscientiousnessand Agreeableness correlated positively with positive RC. Also Honesty-Humility and GodImage correlated positively with positive RC and negatively –with negative RC. The studyshowed positive correlations between some dimensions of religiosity (and positiveRC. Religious ideology and religious experience correlated negatively with negative RC. The study revealed that on the scale level the most relevant predictors of positive religious coping are scales such as religiosity and image of God, and personal traits such as agreeableness and openness. Likewise it was identified that onthe scale level the most relevant predictors of negative religious coping are scales such as image of God, neuroticism and religiousness. Thesefindings suggest tenets for psychological and pastoral interventions to decrease the impact ofnegative RC
