Easton's Bible Dictionary generally refers to the Illustrated Bible Dictionary, Third Edition, by Matthew George Easton M.A., D.D. (1823-1894), published (three years after Easton's death) in 1897 by Thomas Nelson. Because of its age, it is now a public domain resource. Despite its name, many of the entries in Easton's are encyclopedic in nature, though there are also short, dictionary-like entries. It contains nearly 4,000 entries.
Easton's Bible Dictionary contains nearly 4,000 entries relating to the Bible, from a 19th century Christian viewpoint. Some of the entries in it are now out-of-date, many are only short dictionary entries, but much remains that is useful source material.
