Note: I would prefer that this be supported by labels so that the users can add relevant instances from resources outside what Faithlife coded.

I would include symbols, images and motifs in this section - I'm still waffling on whether they should be distinguished in the data or whether we should make the user think.

Examples of resources that should be included:

  • Jensen, Robin M. Baptismal Imagery in Early Christianity: Ritual, Visual, and Theological Dimensions. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Academic, 2012.
  • Ryken, Leland, Jim Wilhoit, Tremper Longman, Colin Duriez, Douglas Penney, and Daniel G. Reid. Dictionary of Biblical Imagery. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2000.
  • Kim, Chŏng-hun. The Significance of Clothing Imagery in the Pauline Corpus. Vol. 268. Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement. London; New York: T&T Clark International, 2004.
  • Munro, Jill M. Spikenard and Saffron: The Imagery of the Song of Songs. Vol. 203. Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement Series. Sheffield: Sheffield Academic Press, 1995.

I heartily agree, especially for the Dictionary of Biblical imagery!
