Book Description:
This volume of papers examines the attribution of books to figures in antiquity: Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Levi, Moses, Ezekiel, Daniel and others. The authors offer literary studies of these pseudepigraphical writings; assess the uses of pseudonymity and anonymity in the Dead Sea Scrolls and rabbinic literature; and explore the theological, social and historical implications of the different attributions and approaches. The consequences of assigning the origins of evil to humans (Adam and Eve) or to demons (the generations of Enoch and Noah) and the significance of each author's choice of pseudepigraphical pseudonym for identifying his social context are among the issues addressed.
