“The heavens, the earth and all their hosts” (Gen 2,1). The inventory of the supernatural entities in the Hebrew Bible created with the Elyonim veTachtonim system - a new paper

It took some time, but the paper is finally online. As always, the accepted manuscript of the article can be found in the Legacy section.


Elyonim veTachtonim is a system of quantitative and qualitative analysis of the traditions involving supernatural entities and, in this paper, I showcase its implementation to the construction of the biblical inventory. I start with a review of the printed and electronic resources and recognize their advantages and limitations which informed and motivated the production of the database. Next, I summarize the theoretical and methodological fundamentals of the endeavor and then scrutinize the development process emphasizing the quantitative and qualitative specificities of the biblical inventory. Finally, I sketch out the possible applications of the database and its prospective developments.
