The Library of Israel in Late Antiquity: Jewish Writings Related to Bible from the Second Temple Period

Production of a volume of translations of writings by Jews in Judea and the Diaspora from roughly 300 BCE to 100 CE. (30 months)

The Jewish Publication Society requests NEH support to research, write, edit, and design a groundbreaking anthology of Jewish writings from the Second Temple period that represent the religious, intellectual and ideological matrix out of which grew two great religious traditions--rabbinic Judaism and early Christianity. An international team of 70 distinguished humanist scholars will prepare revised translations, introductions, and detailed commentary that, for the first time, places this vast literature in Jewish context, relating the texts to later rabbinic and patristic traditions.
