Profiling Jewish Literature in Antiquity, Hardback (November 2013)View all books by Philip S. Alexander
This book presents a new methodology for the study of ancient Jewish literature extant in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. It arises from empirical investigation into the literary structures of many anonymous and pseudepigraphic sources, including Pseudepigrapha and Apocrypha of the Old Testament, the larger Dead Sea Scrolls, Midrash, and the Talmuds.
