Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Jewish Writings of the Second Temple Period: Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, Qumran Sectarian Writings, Philo, Josephus contains the foreword, editor's preface, acknowledgements, the table of contents and the introduction. The book presents literary production of Judaism in the period of the Second Temple, with the exclusion of the Bible on the one hand, and rabbinic literature on the other. Jewish writings originated in the Second Temple period, which proved highly creative in the midst of strong external influences and internal movements. Dead Sea scrolls appear more or less related in spirit to a group of writings transmitted by Christianity and known as the Pseudepigrapha. Apocrypha are closely related to later biblical writings and incorporated within the Greek Old Testament. Finally, the encounter with Greek culture is documented by Jewish authors writing in Greek, notably Philo and Josephus.
