Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception
ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE BIBLE AND ITS RECEPTION (EBR)
The Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception (EBR) is a multi-faceted reference work which covers biblical and religious topics as well as their reception in an array of religious, cultural and academic disciplines and fields.
Its content is the result of an interdisciplinary approach, transcending a purely theological perspective, to include fields ranging from classical, literary and religious studies to archaeology, music, visual arts and film.
In addition, the encyclopedia is interreligious (Judaism, Christianity, Islam and other Religions) from the aspect of both its content and its authors.
EBR’s authors (currently more than 3500) come from and work in over 55 countries and are members of faculties, institutes and acclaimed academic institutions worldwide. This ensures the international character of the entries and the up-to-date quality of the articles.
A team of 40 editors and a rigorous review process also guarantee the high standard of the material. Currently, over 15,000 articles have been published and 30,000 are in preparation.
EBR is a resource tool for scholars in biblical, cultural and religious studies and related fields, but also accessible to general readers interested in the biblical topics.
EBR is available in both a print and an electronic version:
