Abstract

Despite the richness of its facets, the short religious epic has been largely neglected by scholars until now. This study explores this literary phenomenon using a multi-perspectival descriptive model. Extensive detailed case studies provide basic information and present the genre in its broader literary historical and systematic context.

Abstract

The contributors to this volume discuss the formation and transformation of ancient concepts of authorship, specifically among those types of texts that are classified as “religious literature” – whether Greco-Roman, early Jewish, and early Christian. In twelve case studies spanning the time from Ben Sira to Tertullian, various ways of how authors considered themselves to be individual producers of texts and religious voices are carved out. The volume presents authors who fashion themselves either as orthonymous, anonymous, or pseudepigraphic writers, and who share the idea of being “religious agents”. The search for these religious voices undertaken here is a valuable contribution to both research in ancient “Autorforschung” and the religio-historical study of how religious knowledge was produced in the ancient Mediterranean world.
