The etymological and hermeneutical analysis of belief was made. The difference between the ontological and gnoseological approaches to belief was shown by means of examples of outstanding representatives of Russian (P.A. Florensky, S.N. Bulgakov, A.F. Losev, N.O. Lossky) and German schools of philosophy (A. Schopenhauer, F. Nietzsche, M. Heidegger). Parallels between the philosophical conceptual apparatus and the etymological peculiarities in understanding of belief by different cultural traditions were drawn.
