Abstract

This research is qualitative research about the religious life (Religiosity) of the Trowulan community. This research is motivated by the turbulent situation in the latest conditions which have an impact on moral decadence and despair in the wider community. The focus of the research is directed to two research questions, namely, how is the religiosity of the Trowulan community and what symbols of religiosity can be captured, and the meaning behind it. This study pays attention to the collection of information through interviews and observations as well as the collection of other supporting documents. All information was analyzed using content analysis, especially in interpreting verbal symbols as well as how symbolic interactionism works. This study concludes that the typology of religiosity in Trowulan is patterned into three types, namely: conservative – involutive – orientation in Temon village, progressive – critical – projective type in Sentonorejo village, and innovative – inventive – active type in Trowulan village. The religiosity symbols picked are traditionalists in Temon village with accumulative meanings, modernists in Sentonorejo village with synthetic meanings, and eclectic symbols in Trowulan village with assimilative meanings.
