The aim of the monography is to analyse in a systematic fashion the theoretical basis of comparative discourse in Religious and Biblical studies. At first author examines how some scholars (F. M. Müller, E. B. Tylor, C. P. Tiele, R. Pettazzoni, G. Dumézil, M. Eliade, C. Lévi Strauss) adopted the comparative method in their religious investigation. Secondly he mapes out the aplication of comparative method in Biblical, especially Old Testament studies, and in research into Ancient Near Eastern religious cultures (in a works of E. Renan, J. Wellhausen, W. Robertson Smith, F. Delitzch, H. Gunkel, S. H. Hooke, I. Engnell, G. Widengren, H. Ringgren, J. Bottéro, N. Wyatt, P. Xella).
