Description

Intended to complement James Charlesworth's Old Testament Pseudepigrapha, this new two-volume collection adds a great many previously unpublished or newly translated texts. Providing the reader with virtually all known surviving pseudepigrapha written before the rise of Islam, Old Testament Pseudepigrapha presents the sacred legends and spiritual reflections of numerous works that were lost, neglected, or supressed for many centuries, with authoritative yet accessible introductions to each text.
