Chapter Summary

This chapter explains the necessary groundwork for a more comprehensive reading of the Apocryphon of Jeremiah c in two sections. It reviews the history of publication of the Apocryphon c, and discusses the various issues that have emerged regarding the shape of this text. The chapter provides a more detailed physical description of the most extensive of the witnesses, 4QApocryphon of Jeremiah ca (4Q385a), in an effort to establish a better sense of the physical and literary shape of the text. Despite the satisfaction in separating the Apocryphon c from Pseudo-Ezekiel, Cana Werman has advocated the distinction of material closer to her earlier separation of the fragments into three separate works: Pseudo-Ezekiel, the Apocryphon of Jeremiah c, and Pseudo-Moses. The second volume of Elisha Qimron's contains the fragments and manuscripts assigned to the Apocryphon of Jeremiah c.

Keywords: 4QApocryphon of Jeremiah ca (4Q385a); Apocryphon of Jeremiah c; Cana Werman; Elisha Qimron; Pseudo-Ezekiel; Pseudo-Moses
