Summary/Abstract: The aim of the paper was to present religious vocabulary selected from the 17th century works of Joannikij Galatovski and show the relations between Church Slavonic loan words (particularly words of Greek origin) and their Polish equivalents. The vocabulary has been divided into several subject groups concerning church organization, religious rites and feasts, liturgy, church books and prayers, God and other definition relating to the Orthodox Church. Some of these words or word combinations can be qualified as borrowings others may be treated as quotations used in the Polish texts. Analyzing Christian terminology the author pays attention to the usage of East Slavonic borrowings and Polish terms. The examples provided in the article indicate that the writer sometimes substitutes Church Slavonic loan words for Polish terms or uses them simultaneously.
