This paper surveys the role of animal imagery in the literature of the Old Testament and in post-biblical Jewish literature. The article also discusses biblical materials that speak to humankind's relation to animals. It assesses the subsequent use of these traditions to support or negate specific attitudes toward the natural environment.
