This article attempts to assess differences in social capital of religious and nonreligious
respondents in Mediterranean and Continental Croatia, based on the results of a 2018
nationally representative survey. The approach to analysis is based primarily on Bourdieu’s concept
of social capital, but in addition to “structural” (networks of relationships and reliance),
it also includes “cultural” (different forms of trust) indicators. The results of the analysis reveal
that religiosity of the respondents and the types of their social capital are differently distributed
in Mediterranean and Continental Croatia, as well as in the capital city of Zagreb, which was
analysed separately, since previous research suggested that numerous indicators for that city
differ significantly from those of the general sample. The analysis also revealed differences in
the levels of “generalized trust” and trust in institutions, which were included to complement
insights gained by the application of Bourdieu’s (structural) analytical categories. The religiosity
of the respondents has been shown to be related to their social capital in all the analysed
geographical regions (both in its “structural” and “cultural” aspects), yet in somewhat different
ways. These differences can be partly explained by different histories of the interpenetration of
religiosity and culture in different regions. However, the results suggest that the position of the
respondents in the space of social inequalities should also be further researched.
