This qualitative research sets out to investigate firstly, if dual religious belonging exists, and, secondly, if it does, what the nature of this belonging is. The article defines dual religious belonging using a conceptual framework of human beings as functioning on the cognative, affective and cognative levels which allows for degrees of belonging. A battery of questions built into a structured interview was the instrument used to interview a total of thirty-three adults taken from the greater Sydney area in Australia. While many issues came to the fore in the interviews, the conclusion was that dual religious belonging did in fact exist; that a number of interviewees did in fact "walk two paths", or "have two religious roots". It also concluded that dual religious belonging tended to be the adherence to one main religion while having a second religion on which the individual draws.
