Getting insights on the shape and nature of the ionizing continuum in astronomical objects is often done via indirect methods as high energy photons are absorbed by our Galaxy. This work explores the ionization continuum of active galactic nuclei (AGN) using the ubiquitous coronal lines. Using bona-fide BH mass estimates from reverberation mapping and the line ratio [Si VI] 1.963 micron/Br$\gamma_{\rm broad}$ as tracer of the AGN ionizing continuum, a novel BH-mass scaling relation of the form… Expand
