Cross-listed with CHS 6607 and CTH 6607 The Apocrypha contains Jewish texts from the Hellenistic and Roman period but exists as a collection because of the reading practices of the early Christian Church. This course will introduce students both to the contents of this collection as windows into the history, social context, faith, and practice of Jewish groups in the Second Temple Period and to the impact of these texts upon, and formation as a collection within, the early church.
