У статті розглянуто історико-релігійні конотації формування поняття пристрасті в християнській етиці. Відмічено антиномічний характер його тлумачення й накреслено шляхи концептуалізації пристрасті в релігійно-філософському дискурсі. Обґрунтовано думку про пристрасть як есенційну рису людини, що надає сутнісних ознак гріховності й стражданню в людському існуванні. В межах дослідження ставиться питання про онтологічне підґрунтя людської недосконалості та вказано напрацьовані релігійними мислителями різних часів способи її виправлення. (The main objective of the article is to analyze the works of Christian philosophers in order to determine the concept of passion in the ethical religious and philosophical discourse. The development of historical and religious values of the concept of passion in Christian ethics are considered. In the article the antinomic character of its interpretation is noted and the ways of creation the passion as a concept in religious and philosophical discourse are outlined. The need to identify the concept of passion is fi rst of all justifi ed by intentions of thinkers to explain the ways of spiritual and moral perfection: knowledge of God, deifi cation, holiness etc. The Greek words «pathe», «pathos» are the basis for the concept of passion, which contains a sensual component from the beginning, that was infl uenced on the meaning of modern passion and suffering. It is proved that the concept of passion in Christian ethics is determined by the disclosure of its positive and negative sense. For instance, the negative meaning of passion is most compatible with the concept of suffering. Apart from the positive or negative meanings, «pathos» was interpreted by ancient and early Christian philosophers as the impulses of the soul, the helpers of the intellect, emotions, feelings, which allows us to do a conclusion about its dual rational and sensual nature. The statement about essential interpretation of human nature belongs to the methodological foundation of this study. The vision of passion as an essential human feature, which stipulates sinfulness and suffering in human existence, is substantiated. The research also includes the issue of the ontological foundation of human imperfection and indicates the ways of its correcting, which were developed by religious thinkers of different times. Passion contains the intention to overcome the suffering as well as ontological basis of human being. That can be inferred in the doctrines of the knowledge of God, the salvation and deifi cation of anthropolatry. That way crucial Christian methods for spiritual and moral perfection are confession, struggle with passions, hesychia, fast, prayer and so on.)
