The article addresses various linguistic paradigms within which idioms have been traditionally studied. The paper focuses on linguo-cultural, psycho-cognitive, comparative and structural-semantic aspects of phraseology. As a  result of  analysis of  various approaches towards idioms and considering the  above-mentioned aspects of tackling them we have coined the terms social phraseology or sociophrasemics, theophrasemics. Theophrasemics demonstrates universal nature of idiomatic construals in languages of diverse structural organization. The nature of  theophrasemics is  addressed via the  study of  its micro-systemic component, that being a  bulk of idioms containing the designation of God. Considering the  lingual code a  carrier of  epistemological information, we  address the  respective proper names as manifestations of specific national character. Thus the idioms containing the name of God demonstrate ethnic peculiarities of conceptualizing and verbal encoding of God’s individual and social significance. The idioms under study that correspond with folk beliefs demonstrate a heavy impact of Christian values. Idiomatic constructions in  Ukrainian, English and Spanish demontrate similar structural and semantic features. We interpret the similarities in their structure and stylistic potential in terms of socio-phraseology’s international character.
