Abstract This book aims to retrieve, study, and reconstruct the phenomenon of monotheistic myth over the course of two millennia, from its first literary articulations in the Hebrew Bible to mythmaking in classic rabbinic Midrash and the medieval Kabbalistic book of Zohar. Several paradigmatic configurations are isolated and used to explore the characters and construction of monotheistic myth sources, and patterns of thermatic continuity and transformation. This strategy will allow a synchronic analysis of central tropics in each separate period and facilitate their diachronic correlation and comparison with various corpora. The book is divided into three parts. Part I deals with biblical myths. Part II focuses on Rabbinic myth and mythmaking. Part III explores Jewish Myth and Mythmaking in the Middle Ages.
