In the introductory section of this volume, the author presents a detailed but concise survey of the apocryphal works. She outlines how and why this type of literature developed, and shows its relation to the growth of the Judaeo-Christian tradition. A list of the most important apocrypha, with explanatory notes about their content and influence, concludes this complete introduction. The text continues with extracts from the writings themselves. Various accounts of creation, the conceptions of good and evil and the notions of the spirit world are all studied in depth. Legends of the Age of the Patriarchs and several other selections reflect the traits of the people of ancient Israel. The author devotes special attention to the pious sect of Jews who formed the Qumran community and who are responsible for the writings in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Interesting portions from the actual text of these scrolls provide illuminating insights into the daily life of this religious group. Through comments and evaluations, the author provides a significant link in the chain of religious history.
