Summary/Abstract: Recent decades, in Belarus, despite all their contrast to the society and the individual, areepoch-making, momentous in the spiritual sense. With freedom of religion traditions of spiritualityare also being revived in literature. Christina Lyalko, famous Belarussian prose writer, translatorfrom Italian and Polish languages, many years editor of the Catholic magazine “Our Faith”, authorof the book of poetry Na dalonyah ljubovł (Minsk 2006), in her life and works consistentlyprofesses spiritual and ethical values - obtained by an individual at his very birth - aiming atrevealing the harmonious unity of the Earthly life and the Life in Heaven. It is noteworthy thata key moment in her spiritual life was not a search for faith, as the majority of her contemporarieswould do, but the expectation of the universal conversion to the existing. In its spiritual essenceand its artistic and aesthetic manifestation poetry by C. Lyalko belongs to the “Pascalian” branchof development of the Belarusian religious poetry, associated with the tradition of thinking, attitudeto the universe and individual’s place in it, which are peculiar to B. Pascal.
