A mammoth reference containing hundreds of articles on biblical figures, motifs, concepts, quotations, and allusions---both in scriptural context and as they've been understood by English-speaking writers since the middle ages.
Over 15 years in the making, an unprecedented one-volume reference work. Many of today's students and teachers of literature, lacking a familiarity with the Bible, are largely ignorant of how Biblical tradition has influenced and infused English literature through the centuries. An invaluable research tool. Contains nearly 800 encyclopedic articles written by a distinguished international roster of 190 contributors. Three detailed annotated bibliographies. Cross-references throughout.
