The primary witnesses of the writings called Pseudepigrapha of the
Old Testament are, in great majority, of Christian provenance. It
has been customary for scholars to look for an originally Jewish
form of the documents, reflecting Jewish life and thought in the
period between 200 BCE and 100 CE. In this volume, M. de Jonge
argues that these writings should, first of all, be studied as
documents relevant for Christians. This volume incorporates essays
written earlier by the author as well as a number of new chapters.
The first part deals with general questions concerning the
transmission of the pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament whereas the
second part has a particular focus on the "Testaments of the Twelve
Patriarchs" and the Greek "Life of Adam and Eve,"
