Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible

£60.00

Product description

The dust jacket is in very good condition with only light wear, except for a couple of creases a the top of the inside front flap. The page edges have a few light marks, but the pages themselves are in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked.

This text presents a reference on the gods, angels, demons, spirits and semi-divine heroes whose names occur in the biblical books. This revised edition features 30 new entries, while more than 100 have been updated. The text is arranged in order of the Latin alphabet and the more than 400 names are those found in the books of the Hebrew and Greek Bible, the Old and New Testament, including the Apocrypha. There are entries on divine names recognized as such by the biblical authors, divine names in theophoric toponyms and anthroponyms, secular terms which occur as divine names in neighbouring civilizations, conjectural divine names and humans who acquired a semi-divine status in tradition. A typical entry contains a discussion of the pertinent name, its meaning, the religio-historical background, relevant biblical passages and a bibliography. The book includes extensive indices and cross-references.
This copy is the extensively revised second edition.
