Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the key concepts discussed in this book. The book is devoted to critical and methodological questions relating to Paul and pseudepigraphy. Armin Baum provides his audience with a reader of primary sources and select annotated bibliography of ancient and modern attitudes towards pseudepigraphy. Several key excerpts from ancient Christian and non-Christian authors are included (with comments) that open a window into how pseudepigraphy was conducted and received in the social world of early Christianity. Baum assesses some important contemporary treatments that interpret the practice of pseudepigraphy in a variety of ancient contexts. Attempts to fit the Pastoral letters into a reconstructed Pauline chronology have resulted in a variety of proposals. The issue of Pauline pseudepigraphy clearly has important implications both for his own body of letters and for the more general topic of pseudepigraphy within the New Testament.

Keywords: Armin Baum; early Christianity; Pauline pseudepigraphy
