Ancient Jewish Novels


The most familiar Jewish texts to survive from Greco-Roman antiquity are biblical in nature. Although Jewish popular novels also flourished during this period they have traditionally been overlooked by scholars of both classical literature and Jewish history. This volume presents English translations of thirteen novels, including historical novels and `novelistic testaments', preceded by a brief introduction that discusses the novelists' main themes and concerns.
