Description:

This study is a semantic analysis of Hebrew terms for the human life cycle in the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible. It is the first such study to examine these terms from the perspective of a specific semantic domain (age) rather than in isolation from each other. This monograph also includes a chapter on the history of lexical semantic study from the Greeks on down to the present internet age and a second chapter on the conception and sociology of the life cycle in the Ancient Near East.
