In this paper, the notion of the radical of a filter in residuated lattices is defined and several characterizations of the radical of a filter are given. We show that if F is a positive implicative filter (or obstinate filter), then Rad(F)=F. We proved the extension theorem for radical of filters in residuated lattices. Also, we study the radical of filters in linearly ordered residuated lattices.
