Bob Dylan and the Bible, an index

Untold Dylan: The Biblical Index

Introduction 

 

This is one of a number of indexes offered by Untold Dylan, in this case an index of articles that cite specific Biblical references in relation to Dylan’s compositions.

In each case the relevant book of the Bible is cited with a link to the relevant article on this site.

We are aware from correspondence both from academics and students that this site is being used for the purposes of studying Bob Dylan’s work, and of course we find that incredibly gratifying.  Indeed we hope that this list might be of help in that work.

All that we ask in return is that if you do utilise this page, or indeed extract data from any other page from this site, you do cite the author of the page and the website “Untold Dylan” as the source.
