dc.description.abstractAncient Israelite anthropology considered the heart to be the seat of emotions, personality, rationality and volition. Multiple allusions to the heart in the Old Testament support such a notion. This paper investigates four conceptual metaphors, namely The Heart as a Living Organism, The Heart as an Object of Value, The Heart as a Solid and The Heart as a Container as a means of illuminating the cognitive reality behind the metaphorical expressions of the heart occurring in the Old Testament. Through a cognitive analysis of the relevant textual information it is demonstrated that there exists a link between metaphors, body and experience.en_ZA
