Abstract Since the classic studies of early Christian pseudepigraphy in the 1960s and 70s, pseudonymity has been a vital question of New Testament scholarship. Yet no comprehensive, new work taking into consideration the many recent developments in the field has been published. Today scholarship demands exacting discussions of ancient parallels, categorizing method and type of authorial fiction and addressing respective functions and legacies. The present volume meets this demand through its examination of a wide range of pseudonymous authorial constructions from Early Judaism to the Greek and Roman world. It features treatments of apocalyptic, Qumran, wisdom and apocryphal literature as well as the ancient letter novel while maintaining a focus on New Testament epistolary literature. The volume covers all NT texts commonly viewed as pseudonymous as well as Hebrews. Its chief aim is to update respected treatments of the past with a fresh awareness of the immense variety of texts and strategies. (Presentation on the publisher's website)
