dc.description.abstractThe present study aims to investigate whether or not there are affinities between the Ugaritic texts and the Hebrew Bible with regard to the nature and roles of divine beings ranked as lesser deities.en
dc.description.abstractThe first chapter investigates that the Ugaritic and biblical Hebrew texts contain evidence of polytheistic backgrounds of the divine assembly, which entails that it consists hierarchically of the higher deities and other lesser deities who are associated with these higher deities.en
dc.description.abstractThe second chapter examines that the lesser deities in the Ugaritic and biblical Hebrew texts are understood as having a kinship relation to their master god(dess).en
dc.description.abstractThe third chapter scrutinises that whilst diverse titles are employed to indicate the divine messengers in the Ugaritic texts, they are simply expressed as [???? (?????)] in the Hebrew Bible, which is also attested in the Ugaritic texts.en
dc.description.abstractThe fourth chapter observes that whilst the lesser deities appear as the warrior deities with a diversity of titles in the context of the divine warfare in the Ugaritic texts, the lesser deities in the Hebrew Bible are represented also as warrior deities through various titles.en
dc.description.abstractThe last chapter arranges the miscellaneous roles of the lesser deities into the categories of mediator deities, guardian deities, chanter deities, and servant deities represented in both Ugaritic and biblical Hebrew descriptions.en
dc.description.abstractThrough the striking parallels displayed between the lesser deities of the Ugaritic texts and the Hebrew Bible, this research concludes that the Hebrew religious tradition has shared the same theological conceptions as Ugaritic religion.en
