Western culture has been shaped largely by the Bible. In attempting to understand the Scriptures, scholars of the last three hundred years have intensively studied both these sacred texts and other related ancient writings. A cursory examination reveals that their authors depended on other sources, some of which are lost and some of which have recently come to light. Part of these extant sources are the pseudepigrapha. Though the meaning of the word can be disputed by scholars, The Old Testament Pseudepigrapha is a collection of those writings which are, for the most part, Jewish or Christian and are often attributed to ideal figures in Israel's past. Volume 1 of this work contains two sections. The first is Apocalyptic Literature and Related Works. An apocalypse, from the Greek meaning revelation or disclosure, is a certain type of literature which was a special feature of religions in late antiquity. In the past, the definition was derived from the study of only some of the extant apocalypses, especially the Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation. This has changed and the present edition of the pseudepigrapha includes nineteen documents that are apocalypses or related literature. It will now be easier to perceive the richness of apocalyptic literature and the extent of early Jewish and Christian apocalyptic ideas and apocalyptic religion.… (més)

This collection (in 2 volumes) - the ancient Jewish or Jewish-Christian texts and the excellent introductions - opens the door to an unknown and fascinating religious world. Indispensable in the study of the origins of Christianity. ( )

The defining resource for Old Testament pseudepigrapha.

The first volume contains apocalypses and testaments, featuring prominent works like 1 Enoch and the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs as well as lesser known texts.

Each text is translated into modern English and prefaced with an introduction explaining what is known about the text's origin, likely location, relation to the OT/NT/pseudepigrapha, etc. The introductions are of the highest quality and facilitate understanding.

The only challenge is the uneven nature of the work since it is collaborative: some texts are full of explanatory notes, others have very few indeed.

Nevertheless, if you have any interest in pseudepigraphal literature, this is a must have and must read resource. ( )

This PB edition is great value, and particularly suitable for students. The print quality is great and the pagination the same as in other editions for ease of reference, although the margins are smaller to accomodate the smaller format. The cover and binding are not heavy-duty, however, and I've found it essential to have the book covers stiffened.

NO OF PAGES: 995 SUB CAT I: Reference SUB CAT II: Extra Biblical Writings SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: Western culture has been shaped largely by the Bible. In attempting to understand the Scriptures, scholars of the last three hundred years have intensively studied both these sacred texts and other related ancient writings. A cursory examination reveals that their authors depended on other sources, some of which are lost and some of which have recently come to light. Part of these extant sources are the pseudepigrapha. Though the meaning of the word can be disputed by scholars, "The Old Testament Pseudepigrapha" is a collection of those writings which are, for the most part, Jewish or Christian and are often attributed to ideal figures in Israel's past. Volume 1 of this work contains two sections. The firs is "Apocalyptic Literature and Related Works". And apocalypse, from the Greek meaning revelation or disclosure, is a certain type of literature which was a special feature of religions in late antiquity. In the past, the definition was dereived from the study of only some of the extant apocalypses, especially the Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation. This has changed and the present edition of the pseudepigrapha includes nineteen documents that are apocalypses or related literature. It will now be easier to perceive the richness of apocalyptic literature and the extent of early Jewish and Christian apocalyptic ideas and apocalyptic religion. The second section of Volume 1 is "Testaments (Often with Apocalyptic Sections)". These eight testaments represent a type of writing that was presaged in the Old Testament but which did not reach maturity until the time of the Second Teple (c. 500 B.C. to A.D. 70). Just as the Old Testament contains for Jews and Christians a record of God's covenant, testament, and will, so these works reputedly preserve the solemn last words and wills of model figures, all designed to instruct the heirs in the way of righteousness. Often a model figure illustrates his words with a feature common to apocalyptic literature - the description of the future as it has been revealed to him in a dream or vision. Here, then, is the first volume of this landmark work. These new translations present these important documents, many for ht e first time, in modern English, for all those "People of the Book" to study, contemplate, and understand.NOTES: Purchased from Amazon.com.

This is one half of the standard two volume collection used by scholars of books that did not make it into the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. The translations are up-to-date and the notes and introductions are clear and helpful guides to each work. An invaluable collection of Jewish life and thought (including efforts at assimilation to Greek culture) in far newer translations than can be found for free online.

Highly recommended for anyone who is curious about what isn't in the Bible.
