Tobit and Judith


Sheffield Academic Press 2002

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The two apochryphal books, Tobit and Judith, are Jewish legends presumably created in the 3rd or 2nd century BCE. The first was composed in the Eastern Diaspora, the other in Palestine. The events related are placed in the Assyrian epoch in the 7th century BCE.

This volume discusses the problems between real history and historical fiction, the genres and purposes of the two books, and the literary and religious motives of the tales. Also dealt with are textual problems such as the Greek text in the Septuagint vs. Hebrew and Aramaic Tobit-fragments from Qumran.
