Description

For some time it has been evident that scholars of early Judaism and early Christianity need better access to the texts of the Pseudepigrapha in their original (or extant) languages and with a critical apparatus. In many cases critical editions are prohibitively expensive or out of print, and scholars without access to a large library have been hard pressed to find them.

The Online Critical Pseudepigrapha is intended to address the problem of difficult to access Pseudepigrapha by publishing on-line, free-access critical texts of the Pseudepigrapha which are up-to-date and academically rigorous. This aim is to be realized by

  1. co-ordinating the efforts of scholars who take on the editing of individual texts;
  2. providing a forum for peer review of texts as they are developed;
  3. developing the technology necessary for the publication of these texts in electronic form; and
  4. providing a permanent web-site for the long-term publication of these texts and as a forum for ongoing text-critical work on the pseudepigrapha.

The project is sponsored by and hosted at King's University College, University of Western Ontario, Canada.
