Chapter Summary

This chapter is intended as a sequel to an earlier study entitled "Temple and Cult in Apocryphal and Pseudepigraphical Writings from before the Common Era". It carries forward that earlier study by examining the way in which the temple is presented in the Psalms of Solomon, the Assumption of Moses, and the Baruch literature. The Baruch writings are all set at the time of the Babylonian exile and reflect the idea that Israel was still in a state of exile. With the exception of Baruch, to a considerable extent they represent a reaction to the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the temple in 70 C.E., and they offer very different responses to these events. The chapter finally examines the references to the temple in the Psalms of Solomon and the Assumption of Moses, which both also reflect the impact of specific historical events.
