Rate this:
"...provides the reader with new insight into the plants and landscapes so central to biblical images and parable... This unique book is divided into two parts: the first - an ecologicallly inclusive picture of the interdependency of biblical man and his natural environment, stressing the role of plants in religion, the arts, agriculture, trade and daily life. The second - groups the plants into natural argricultural and morphological units depicting the life history of each plant in terms of botany, geography and use. Every entry contains relevant quotations from the Old Testament, New Testament, or the Apocrypha and a discussion of the plant's name-origin and identity - mistranslations having given rise in the past to many incorrect identifications."--Book jacket.
