The article investigates the notion of human corporeality in the Old Jewish literary tradition from the point of view of the monotheistic picture of the world. Specific texts of Tanakh (Old Testament, according to the Christian creed), the Jewish Scripture, and their interpretation in the Christian New Testament are analyzed. The basic principles and peculiarities of Biblical cosmogоnity and anthropogonity against the background of the Ancient Near Eastern mythic picture of the world are viewed. The article provides a comparative analysis of the conception of the substantial human essence of Old Testament and Ancient Greece, upon which the modern understanding of corporeality within the framework of the Western cultural space is based.
