I suspect these are not encyclopedia because some or all of them are ebooks.  Yet to the user, they function as encyclopedia - especial the angel, man, names of God, and women ones.

It would be easier to explain Logos if these were encyclopedias.

Really? They are all sold on Logos.com, not via ebooks.faithlife.com (lucky for the international customers)

The one I own, "Every woman", definitely is a Logos Research Edition, with an old, Logos ID of LLS:34.0.99, last updated 2013 (do they possibly pre-date the existence of eBooks?). It has the annoying page index - which wouldn't bug me as much if this wasn't the only index present, which makes the type:monograph book functionally as valuable as an eBook, even though the 8-vol bundle is listed as "type: reference"  on https://www.logos.com/product/54018/every-thing-in-the-bible

They would need an English headwords index for that. But I note that community tags suggest it as commentarynonversified. A bible index would be appropriate and might help, too, but it is intended as an encyclopedia - but not built as such.

If they are Research editions then we should demand headwords ... and basic Biblical entity tagging.
