Overall, spirituality correlates weak- ly with different types of coping with cancer. The strongest positive correlation was found between Experience of faith and Fatalism as a domain of mental adjustment on cancer. This correlation reached small effect size and there was strong evidence for this correlation according to Bayes factor. Experience also correlated on low magnitude with Helpless- ness/Hopelessness and anxious preoccupation. Low negative correlation was also found between Public practice of faith and Helplessness/Hopelessness, and with Anxious preoccu- pation, between Private practice of faith and Helplessness/ Hopelessness, and between Ideology and Fighting spirit. For these correlations, just anecdotical evidence was found ac- cording to Bayes factors. Strength of the correlations is also shown in Figure 1.
