THE RESEARCH PROBLEM AND METHODS: The problem in the paper is taken up in the form of two questions: What methods of describing spirituality and its expression did Korczak use in his texts? What steps did he take to raise a spiritual child? The method adopted in the work is a semantic analysis of selected texts of the great educator, the memories of his pupils and other people with whom he was in close relations, as well as scientfic studies on his life and work. THE PROCESS OF ARGUMENTATION: The article presents the issue of describing and expressing spirituality by Janusz in his texts, as well as his activities to raise a spiritual child. RESEARCH RESULTS: The analysis of Korczak’s texts on spirituality and the activities he undertook shows that one of the goals he set for himself was to make his life and the lives of his pupils more spritual. CONCLUSIONS, INNOVATIONS, AND RECOMMENDTIONS: The undertaken issue requires further studies on the religious language of Korczak and conducting a comprehensive semantic analysis of all the memories of the pupils of the great educator.
