Cultural Concepts

The remaining three guide sections to be discussed differ from the Bible Knowledge Base items proper in that they organize the content of the text rather than tagging elements of the text. The Cultural Concept (Ontology) guide follows a standard classification scheme while (Preaching) Theme and Topic are elements of Faithlife’s creation.

Prerequisite reading: Witthoff, David, Jessica Parks, and Sean Boisen. Lexham Cultural Ontology Dataset Documentation. Bellingham, WA: Faithlife, 2015.

Suggested reading: Human Relations Area Files | Cultural information for education and research (yale.edu) Note the use of related items Subjects Covered (OCM) | Human Relations Area Files (yale.edu)

From Verbum Help:

Cultural Concepts Section

This section displays cultural concepts associated with the search term, as listed in the Lexham Cultural Ontology Glossary. Each concept name links to the Glossary, with a brief description.

 Concepts may also display a breadcrumb showing where the particular concept fits in relation to a larger concepts. For example, the concept Agriculture displays the breadcrumb Abstract > Act > Activity > Food Processes > Food collection > Agriculture. Each concept in the breadcrumb is a link to a particular entry in the Glossary.

Click Search Library to search for resources in the Library that relate to the concept.

This section is included in the Passage Guide and can be added to an Exegetical Guide or Sermon Starter Guide.
