The volume provides a fresh reading of various crucial issues especially within Old Testament Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, Rabbinic literature, Gnostic traditions, and the emerging synagogue. The papers analyse texts and artefacts that reveal how various groups of Judaism understood the concept of worship—a pre-eminent form of expressing religious identity and interpreting fundamental traditions.

The present volume of the DCLY collects the contributions of the International Conference of the a oeInternational Society for the Study of Deuterocanonical and Cognate Literaturea (ISDCL), held in TA1/4bingen/Germany. The articles on the reception and function of Biblical figures in Deuterocanonical and other Early Jewish Literature are devoted to the question of how the meaning of individual biblical figures changed in Hellenistic times. In a variety of approaches, the religious function of these figures in a period of vast political and cultural changes is analyzed, as well as their role in the process of re-establishing Jewish identity in a time, in which the Jewish people suffered from harsh oppression and lived scattered throughout the world. The attempt to address the question of changing perceptions of Biblical figures as well theologically and historically is a first step on the way towards an integration of the topic in the larger framework of a systematic reviewing of post-Biblical theological developments.
