18 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many centuries, the acts and destinies of the first-created human beings, Adam and Eve, have intrigued artists, story-tellers and theologians alike. This volume is a collection of articles on these traditions, written by some of the foremost scholars in the field. The volume consists of two parts. In the first part G.A. Anderson and M.E. Stone have combined a number of studies on the rich variety of Adam and Eve-traditions, from the Life of Adam and Eve onwards to late medieval writings in Armenian. The second part, edited by Johannes Tromp, consists of papers read at the 1998 Leiden symposium, and deals more specifically with the Life of Adam and Eve

The Aramaic Levi document : edition, translation, commentary by Jonas C Greenfield( )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and Aramaic and held by 1,437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Aramaic Levi Document is a collection of larger and smaller fragments identified in Aramaic, Greek and Syriac. The discovery of Aramaic fragments among at Qumran confirmed its antiquity and it is now considered to be one of the oldest Jewish works outside the Hebrew Bible. It presents surprising ideas about the priesthood, sacrifice, wisdom and ideals of piety. Greenfield, Stone and Eshel, each expert in their field, have for the first time presented this work as a single coherent whole (as far as the fragments allow). As well as the original texts, they have translated the book into English and written an extensive and detailed commentary as well as an introduction. Indexes, Concordances of Greek and Aramaic words complete the study. This book will move the study of this pivotal document to a new level

Jewish writings of the Second Temple period : Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, Qumran, sectarian writings, Philo, Josephus( Book )

13 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume describes that part of the rich literary production of ancient Judaism which was not contained in the Hebrew Bible nor in rabbinic literature. these writings originated in the Second Temple period, which proved highly creative in the midst of strong external influences and internal movements. Prime example are the Dead Sea scrolls, documents of an extremely separatist sect. Their discovery in 1947 revolutionized our understanding of the Second Temple Judaism and its literature. The scrolls appear more or less related in spirit to a group of writings transmitted by Christianity and known as the Pseudepigrapha. Yet another group are the Apocrypha, 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. After a historical outline which sets the stage, the chapters in this book describe and analyze these documents. Selective bibliographies for further reading conclude the chapters. An index of sources and of names and subjects, as well an exhaustive list of modern works quoted, complete the volume. It addresses no only scholars and students, but any reader interested in Judaism and Christianity in the ancient period

15 editions published between 1983 and 1991 in English and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is a reader for students, that deals with a number of salient issues in early Judaism, omitting all scholarly technicalities.

Although the book is primarily concerned with early Judaism (the last two centuries B.C.E. and the first century C.E.), each chapter includes both rabbinic and early Christian texts in order to illustrate further developments. The six topics are: - Sects and Parties; - Temple and cult; - Ideals of Piety; - Deliverance, Judgment, and Vindication; - The Agents of Divine Deliverance; - Lady Wisdom and Israel
Armenian art treasures of Jerusalem by Bezalel Narkiss( Book )

23 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the world's great art treasures is the collection of the Jerusalem Patriarchate of the Armenian Church, the richest and most important concentration of Armenian art in the world. Its wealth stems from the place held by Jerusalem in the minds and hearts of the Armenians throughout their existence as a Christian nation, since the fourth century A.D. Pilgrims brought to Jerusalem many of the outstanding creations of Armenian artists, which were deposited in the treasury and library of the Armenian Cathedral of St. James (S. Hakob). Here, for the first time, this collection has been photographed and described extensively. This volume unveils a dazzling variety of art objects--sumptuous medieval illuminated manuscripts, printed books, mosaic pavements, painted tiles and ritual objects. The book contains 194 illustrations, 131 in color. A full description of the collection and its background is provided, along with a detailed catalogue of the objects illustrated.--From publisher description

A history of the literature of Adam and Eve by Michael E Stone( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work describes and analyzes the extensive research on the origin, date, transmission and textual histories, and interrelationships of the primary Adam and Eve books. The "primary" Adam and Eve literature includes the Greek Apocalypse of Moses, the Latin Vita Adam et Evae, the Slavonic Vita Adam et Evae, the Armenian Penitence of Adam, the Georgian Book of Adam, and a fragmentary Coptic version. Like most of the Jewish pseudepigrapha, the transmission of this literature occured primarily in Christian contexts. The question is : how did this literature function in these contexts and by what criteria are the Adam and Eve books to be identified as either Jewish or Christian? Because of the complexity of the transmission history of the Adam and Eve books, this study has far-reaching implications regarding the later use and reshaping of Jewish pseudepigrapha. Includes an extensive bibliography."--Publisher's description
