This work is a continuation of the publication of separate parts"Systematic French-Russian Dictionary of Religious Vocabulary" and is part of a large section "The Characters of the Christian Religion", as well as the subsection "States of the Human Soul". In contrast to the already published topic “Manifestations of piety”, in this case, attention is focused on the state of the believer’s soul, his spiritual quest, and moral character.The material is divided into chapters, which unite the vocabulary devoted to certain aspects of the topic. Special attention is paid to some well-known virtues: love for one's neighbor, mercy, peacefulness, selflessness, etc. Catholicism and reflecting a special view of the world order. Speaking about the purely linguistic side, one must keep in mind that the Russian religious language is often generally characterized by more archaic ways of expressing thought than French. At the same time, we considered it possible to include, along with the usual translation into Russian, the original Russian equivalents of Orthodox authors, Church Slavonicisms, if they are found among the authors of the XX-XXI centuries. In this case, such translations are marked "church-arch".As in previous publications, phrases in quotation marks not only illustrate the use of a single word, but also contain, as a rule, a new unit or reveal the content of a concept related to the section. Usually they are made up of elements (both individual lexemes and phrases) appearing in French and Russian sources, but are not direct quotations.This work was submitted for review to a candidate of theology, a specialist in comparative theology, rector of the St. Nicholas Patriarchal Cathedral in New York, Fr. Igor (Vyzhanov), as well as Bruno Bisson, simultaneous interpreter, candidate of philological sciences. I would like to thank them for their thoughtful reading and comments.
