Chapter Summary

This bibliography contains a list of reference articles and books that occur in this book titled The Despoliation of Egypt: in pre-rabbinic, rabbinic and patristic traditions. This study examines the pre-rabbinic, rabbinic and patristic interpretations of the texts that describe the plundering of the Egyptians: the spoliatio motif in Genesis 15:14; Exodus 3:21-22; 11:2-3 and 12:35-36. Few passages have evoked such embarrassment, both to Jewish and Christian expositors as this one. Vigorous and various apologies for this passage began in the Hellenistic era, and continue to the present time. The study will conclude with an overview of that which has been learned of the relationship of Jews with Christians and Christians with pagans.

Keywords:Egypt; Exodus; Genesis; Jewish; pagan
