Understand cultural concepts from the world of the Bible
The Lexham Cultural Ontology Dataset is a massive database of over 1,000 cultural concepts across 80,000 hand-labeled tags covering religious activities, food, music, birth and death practices, marriage rituals, economic structures, and more. Right-click on any biblical text, select “cultural concepts,” and Logos scours this database, showing you the cultural concepts expressed in that passage or word. We’ve identified concepts like atonement, the image of divinity riding on a cloud, sin offerings, building an altar, and much more. This dataset works with the Cultural Ontology Supplemental Dataset to connect you to ancient literature and other resources to enrich your study of the Bible’s cultural context. Because we’ve done the research for you, contextual work that used to take hours can now be done in seconds by anyone.
