ABSTRACT
The paper attempts to investigate some aspects involved in the translation of the color words or chromonyms in the biblical text. Since the act of translation is a form of written communication linked organically to a given space and time, the translation of color lexicon illustrates, obviously, this dependence on a certain spatiotemporal context. Our approach focuses on the biblical text translated into Romanian language between the sixteenth and the twenty-first centuries. In this way, the analysis proposed, combining the comparative perspective with the historical one, becomes a lexical adventure which highlights the changes occurred throughout history in the equivalence process of a given informational content, the one offered by the color words.
