Pertinent Biblical texts are analyzed by Edward Lipiński, “The Goddess Athirat in Ancient Arabia, in Babylon, and in Ugarit,” Orientalia Lovaniensia Periodica 3 (1972), pp. 101–119, esp. 114, and in a concise but updated way in “Athirat,” Lindsay Jones, ed., Encyclopedia of Religion, vol. 1, 2nd ed. (Detroit: Macmillan, 2005), pp. 589–592. My latest synthesis on the subject, “Cult Prostitution and Passage Rites in the Biblical World,” appeared in The Biblical Annals 3 (2013), pp. 9–25.
