The purpose of this study was to research the biblical motifs in the poetry of GULAG prisoners. The starting point for this work was a hypothesis that the phenomenon of GULAG poetry is in a close affi nity with the tradition of the spiritual poetry described by F. I. Byslaeva as poetry that connects “poetic art and an educated Christian thinking”. By analyzing poetry of N. Anyfrieva и А. Solodovnikovа the conclusion is drawn that even though poets-prisoners are trying to be adherent to the canonical understanding of the biblical plots they are inclined to have a very personal interpretation of the plots which is understandable given the circumstances of that historical time and their life experience.
