Based at the Jagiellonian University, Krakow, this project is absolutely amazing, offering `an exploitable and customizable system of quantitative and qualitative analysis of the traditions involving the supernatural entities in various cultural and religious entourages. Initiated back in 2016 to construe the comprehensive inventory of the supernatural entities in the early rabbinic literature, it was gradually expanded to cover other literary corpora and media.’
Basically, if you need a searchable database of supernatural entities found in the Hebrew scriptures and Babylonian Talmud (and who doesn’t???), this is your project-site. Also features a very savvy methodological framework bringing the cognitive science of religions, cognitive linguistics, and similar methodologies to cast light on this material. Absolutely fascinating, and worthy of exploration!
