The Old Testament Pseudepigrapha, Vol. 2
published September 1985

A very important part of Second Temple Jewish Literature: a vital witness to the diversity of ideas, styles, and genres in the Jewish literary heritage.

A scholarly authority on each text contributes a translation, introduction, and critical notes for each text. Samuel Sandmel rightly stated the following in the Forward: I do not think that the modern student needs to admire every example of the Pseudepigrapha, any more than we today need to regard every novel as a masterpiece. But one can still be astonished, amazed, enlightened, and overwhelmed by the abundance and variety and recurrent high quality of the Jewish literary activity of that period.
