Jewish Writings of the Second Temple Period: Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, Qumran, Sectarian Writings, Philo, Josephus

Foreword

The first section of Compendia was published in two volumes in 1974 and 1976. At that time it could not be foreseen that the preparation of the next section would take so many years, that only now a first part appears in print. The Compendia project is based on teamwork, which necessarily involves a great deal of consultation and discussion. At an advanced stage of preparation it became evident that the original plan was too narrow for an adequate treatment of the sources. In 1979 a new outline was prepared, providing for a three volume work instead of the original two, and a fresh team of editors was engaged to complete the work. The present volume is the first fruit of this undertaking and it is expected that the remaining two volumes will appear within two years.

It is an honourable duty for the Compendia Foundation to acknowledge all scholars who have given their contributions to the realization of the second section. First of all, we mention M. de Jonge, who very skilfully and energetically directed the editorial procedure in the first stage of the project and unselfishly cooperated in the move towards its final form. The basic outline of the section we owe to R. Le Déaut, whose great sensitivity to both the Jewish and Christian dimensions of the project substantially influenced the actual scope of the work. S. Sandmel was a full member of the editorial team of our section till 1970, when he resigned after his appointment as editor-in-chief of HUCA. His inspiring cooperation was very much appreciated and with deep sorrow we received the tidings of his sudden death in 1979. He was succeeded by G. Vermes, who resigned in 1974 because of other commitments, among them the heavy burden of the new edition of Schürer’s History of the Jewish People. We also mention with gratitude the name of B. S. Jackson, who was a skilful and careful editor from 1972-1978.

The list of our acknowledgements is rather long, due to the extended editorial history of our section and we refrain from mentioning all the present members of the editorial board; their names appear on the title page of the present book. Some exceptions should, however, be allowed. We wish to mention with gratitude S. Safrai, who has guided the Compendia project from the beginning, was one of the chief editors of the
