A Commentary on Pseudo-Philo’s Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum, with Latin Text and English Translation (2 vols.)

Howard Jacobson

One of the earliest and most important works of biblical interpretation is a Latin text that is commonly known as the Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum . It was written in the second century AD and is therefore a useful source of information on the period and milieu out of which arose various Jewish sects and Christianity. This book offers the Latin text of Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum , a translation, a commentary that deals extensively with the place of Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum in ancient biblical exegesis and an introduction that treats the major problems associated with Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum (such as date, original language, manuscript tradition and exegetical techniques). The author seeks to illuminate the Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum in new ways by reconstructing the original Hebrew text when that is useful, and by bringing evidence from the Bible, Rabbinic literature and early Christian literature.
