1. Edition 2011

Journal of Ancient Judaism. Supplements -
Jewish Literature of the Second Temple period is characterized by its employment of authoritative literature in quotations and allusions. Until recently the identification of these quotations and allusions depended on textual knowledge of individual scholars. Using new search capabilities of electronic databases this volume presents for the first time a comprehensive list of allusions to and quotations of the books collected in the Hebrew Bible in the Jewish literature from the Second Temple period. It is therefore an indispensable tool for everyone interested in ancient Judaism, the Hebrew Bible and its reception. In order to use it easier the quotations and allusions are listed twice. One list follows the sequence of the biblical books by chapter and verse according to their Masoretic Text. The second list groups the quotations and allusions in the sequence in which they are employed by the quoting or alluding literature.
