Chapter Summary

This index presents the list of author names and terms that occur in this book titled Incubation as a Type-Scene in the ʾAqhatu, Kirta, and Hannah Stories. In the historical study of religion, the term 'incubation' generally refers to the practice of sleeping, or at least passing the night, in a holy place with the object of receiving a divine revelation or divine aid in a dream. The purpose of the Greek incubation was primarily therapeutic and the most popular healing god was Asclepius, who had more than two hundred sanctuaries by the beginning of the Christian era.
