Chapter Summary

The interplay of "Wisdom" and "Torah" and the methodological aspects can hardly be limited to the literature of the Second Temple period. This chapter summarizes some arguments that framed the structure of the book Wisdom and Torah: The Reception of 'Torah' in the Wisdom Literature of the Second Temple Period and to place them within the history of research. Before proceeding, two points need further explanation: first, the inclusion of the book of Deuteronomy in an anthology on "Wisdom and Torah" and second, the presentation of the articles without subdivisions under rubrics such as 'biblical', 'nonbiblical' or 'parabiblical'. This argument is developed in the "Afterword" to mark, on the one hand, the point of departure in terms of the history of research, and to highlight, on the other, insights and questions for further research.
