Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this article is to discuss a few of L. Wittgenstein's remarks on the Bible. The exegesis has the character of a certain insight and clarification of the vague statements on the Bible given by an Austrian philosopher. Wittgenstein's remarks are compared with contemporary, historical and critical views on the biblical books. The texts selected for the analysis do not belong to the “official” works of the Austrian philosopher as Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus and Philosophical Investigations, and might never have been published. Nevertheless, they are a testimony of his intellectual activity and the important source of religious philosophy.
