The Illustrated Bible Dictionary,[a] better known as Easton's Bible Dictionary, is a reference work on topics related to the Christian Bible compiled by Matthew George Easton. The first edition was published in 1893,[1] and a revised edition was published the following year.[2] The most popular edition, however, was the third, published by Thomas Nelson in 1897, three years after Easton's death.[3] The last contains nearly 4,000 entries relating to the Bible. Many of the entries in Easton's are encyclopedic in nature, although there are also short dictionary-type entries.

Because of its age, it is now a public domain resource.
