The ancient literature database of the Academy of the Hebrew Language is now available online. Utilizing the best witnesses from the most reliable transmissions, the site's nine-million-word corpus draws upon some 4,300 Hebrew sources from the classic rabbinic period (2nd century BCE) through the geonic period (11th century CE).
"Ma'agarim" is expanded and updated on a regular basis.
The following literary strata and genres are represented:
Dead Sea Scrolls, Inscriptions, Talmud and Midrash, Geonic Literature, Prayer and Piyyut, Karaite Literature, Sciences, Deeds, Colophons, Amulets, etc., Linguistics: Masorah, Grammar, and Lexicology.
Essentially a concordance, the site accesses all the words in the database and enables retrieval of citations according to roots, lemmata, and declined forms or combinations, as well as of specific texts by title, author, date, or literary genre.
