Abstract
Using a piece of instrumental religious music, we conducted two experiments across four different sites: Japan, Mauritius, the Czech Republic, and the USA. Participants were exposed to one of three kinds of auditory stimuli (religious, secular, or white noise), and were given a chance to cheat on the subsequent task to increase their monetary reward. A significant interaction between condition and religiosity across all sites, with religious participants being more influenced by religious stimuli than non-religious participants, suggests that religious music can function as a subtle moral cue, however, only for those who previously formed this moral association via cultural socialization and ritual participation.
