T&T Clark Study Guides: Wisdom of Solomon


T&T Clark 1997

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The Wisdom of Solomon, an early Jewish text that also became a part of the Catholic canon, has become pivotal for understanding both Hellenistic Judaism and the development of the Israelite wisdom tradition. This guide provides an introduction to all the main aspects of scholarship on the book, including its structure, the “Hellenistic midrash,” the figure of wisdom, the context of its writing, and its main theological ideas—such as immortality, cosmology, apocalyptic theology and the polemic against pagan worship.
