Announcement: This site is in the process of being transferred to its new permanent home, curated by Het Oudtestamentisch Werkgezelschap. Please bookmark for future reference. This is being done gradually. At the time of writing, the “database” is still sparsely populated, but it will grow in time, and eventually replace this site. / 05 Jan 2022

The Semantics of Ancient Hebrew Database project aims to provide a structured and critical survey of scholarly literature on the vocabulary of classical Hebrew. As it grows, it will offer an in-depth resource to complement traditional dictionaries, and also provide pointers to further research. This international, cooperative project involves a growing number of research centres with coordination provided by Amsterdam.

The currently participating centres include the following universities: Amsterdam, Bonn, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Florence, Oxford, Leiden, Rome.
