This is the online collection of the well-established series
Ancient Judaism & Early Christianity, formerly known as
Arbeiten zur Geschichte des Judentums und des Urchristentums containing Volumes 1-106 of which the first,
Die Zeloten by Martin Hengel, was published in 1961. It also includes all 22 volumes in the series
Arbeiten zur Literatur und Geschichte des hellenistischen Judentums, which appeared between 1968 and 1991.
The collection, which includes monographs and collections of essays, covers a range of topics, typically focusing on areas of mutual influence or points of controversy between Judaism and Christianity in the first centuries CE. Recent titles published in the series have included important studies of Josephus, of the Jewish background of Paul's writings, and of the historical Jesus within his Jewish context.
A supplement will become available yearly.
Please note that titles published since 2007 are also available in our Biblical Studies E-Book collections.
