Demonstrating uncertain broadened understanding of epistemology as a common ground of phenomenology of religion and philosophical phenomenology that provides a possibility of even pseudo-phenomenological references the article proposes to specify epistemology in strict distinction from values on the basis of qualitative distinction between cognitive and emotional structures of consciousness. A possibility of such way of basing is confirmed by an example of Hebraic tradition that shows feelings, imbued with them sensa- tions and images non-cognitively. It is pointed out in the article a possibility of understanding the unity of consciousness on the basis of world itself, not on the basis of sensations as cognitive, the unity of feelings and values is also pointed out. The proposed way of epistemology specification would allow to correlate any non-positivist methodologies with scientific criteria, to overcome phenomenology of religion uncertainty as a confusion of research and theological spheres to the science of religion and would promote cognitive strictness of phenomenology.
In Old Russian hymns one sporadically observes the letter Э, incorporated in the text of a hymn. The author argues that this letter refl ects some Hebrew phrases referring to the name of God: he establishes connections between the hymnographic Э and some specifi c hebraisms in the Russian Old Testament manuscripts. The article deals both with the origin of the letter Э and its subsequent evolution.
The paper is dedicated to Hebrew phrases referring to God found in some Russian codices of the Pentateuch of the XV-XVII centuries. The author examines the origin of this phenomenon.
