Surely this short essay consisiting of one sketch, which is reviews of theoretical study about laugh in the Holy Bible. Author describes only some problems and try out give us some categorization. All results are involved in Helmuth Plessner's theory of laugh. Plessner's theory is one of the most famous dispute about laugh in biological and cultural context. Moreover his theory inspiring as disputable two divisions - first - laugh and second - smile. The first one is defined almost as drama condition, it's more like downs of the spirit (synonymous with crying), when people lost temper. This situation describes boundary line our humanity. The second one - smile is much more interesting aspect for Plessner, because for him smile is so typical for people and it can express plurality conditions of our spirit. On the contrary to humanistic way of thinking, biblical studies are not interested in doing some research about laugh idea in the Holy Bible. In this project author concern about research, which has begun intellectual and philosopher - Tomasz Halik. In his works, has devoted reflection of finding place for smile in The Holy Bible. There are many interesting contemplations in his celebrated essay, for example: Sara's smile, Apostle's behaviour in the time of sending of the Holy Spirit (upon the Apostles) and the way of teaching of Jesus. The Bible understanding brings a lot of speculations in the cultural aspect, for example - a vine is a laudatory liquor, which should amuse human heart. Author recognized word 'amuse' in such meaning - it contains laugh, careless joy and unconcerned dance. In this context 'gladness' will be definition, which is considering on relationships and society. It has got horizontal dimension. It's easy to find that in the Holy Bible appears a lot of elements full of joy. Evidently, Plessner is devoted, that smile present motion full of mental sphere, individuality sphere and corporeality sphere. From the outset this volume was designed research of the smile as the only kind, which is express by face movement (mime). Plessner's theory presents typical example of European thinking based on biological experiences, also trying discover the secret of human spirit.
