The finiteness of the torsion of Abelian varieties with a complete real field of endomorphisms in the maximal Abelian extension of the field of definition is proven. This assertion is formally deduced from the finiteness hypothesis for isogenic Abelian varieties, proven for characteristic p > 2. The structure is studied of the Lie algebra of Galois groups acting in a Tate module; in particular, for fields of characteristic greater than two there is proven one-dimensionality of the center of the Lie algebra.
