A-Z: General definitions: Solomon
In the Old Testament the son of David; third king of Israel, whose temple to God was a magnificent symbol of God's might. Famous for his wisdom, he is thought to have written the books of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs.
A book of wise sayings (a kind of oriental textbook) training the young in wise and right living; stylistically, many short, sharp phrases, dramatic contrasts and unforgettable scenes from life; traditionally attributed to Solomon, Israel's 'wise' king.
Rather disjointed and bleak collection of thoughts and sayings about life; attributed to Solomon; conclusions are that life without God is futile and empty, the cycles of nature and history are constantly repeating themselves and that 'There is nothing new under the sun'
Also known as the Song of Solomon; an erotic celebration of human love; variously interpreted by Jews and Christians alike
