Abstract

200 REVIEW OF BOOKS Apocalypse of Baruch SEIDELIN (like KLIJN) denies that its author was a compilator or a redactor: he was in fact an author, although making use of different sources and traditions. The Letter to the 91 tribes seems to be an integral part of the apocalypse which in all probability was written in 95 C.E., cf. BOGAERT I, p. 276-288, in Jerusalem or in a neighbouring town. The translation is primarily based on CERIANI'S text, but has been revised on the basis of I?EDERING'S and KMOSKO'S editions and CHARLES' publication of the Letter to the 9t tribes. The copious and instructive an- notations to the translation provide a wealth of textcritical and exegetical information. The same goes for HAMMERSHAIl\1B'S translation and annotation of Paralipomena Jeremiae. Since a translation of this writing is neither in- cluded in KAUTZSCH'S edition nor in CHARLES' Apocrypha and P.reudepi- grapha (a translation is, however, given by RIESSI,ER), scholars will wel- come the thorough treatment of the rather neglected book in the present edition. The extant Ethiopic versions of Par. Jer. are based on a Greek text which, however, deviated from the Greek text published by CERIANI and HARRIS. The Greek
