Methods and means of scientific visualization through graphs are actively used today in many areas, including the humanities. The effectiveness of their use is also evident in philological research. The article describes the graph model of the terminological thesaurus of the Gospel text by F.M. Dostoevsky, based on the clustering of digrams, taking into account their thematic belonging to different discourses. The identification and analysis of digrams as conceptual points of a terminological thesaurus is important for its network visualization, thanks to which it is clear in which conceptual conjugation key terms “work”, how they are distributed among certain clusters. In one cluster there can be terms from different discourses. This is an important indicator of how the terms are conjugated, how integral in this case is the metalanguage of the studies of the Gospel text by F.M. Dostoevsky. Thus, the terminological thesaurus performs in this case a diagnostic and prognostic role.
