Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of this book, which talks about the a third of a century and focus on interfaces between Jewish materials and the worlds in which they were transmitted and/or perceived, especially Christian contexts. The book deals with details, whether for those unknown authors and compilers of the materials here called "pseudepigrapha" or for known authors such as Philo and Josephus. Some of the sections started out as electronic publications of a quite unpolished nature (e.g., the concluding section on the Dialogue of Timothy and Aquila, based on the minutes from the Philadelphia Seminar on Christian Origins in 1970-1971, combined with more recent material), while others were more formal hardcopy print publications.

Keywords: Christian contexts; Jewish materials; Philadelphia seminar; Philo; pseudepigrapha
