Armenian Apocrypha Relating to Abraham
Stone, Michael E.

Atlanta: Society of Biblical Literature, 2012 pp. xviii + 271. $38.95

Series Information
Early Judaism and Its Literature, 37


Description: This volume introduces a cycle of stories about Abraham as preserved in fifteen unpublished, late medieval manuscripts in Armenian, published here in English for the first time with commentaries, annotations, and critical apparatus. The texts present embroidered Abraham stories dealing with his youth, his life in Egypt, the binding of Isaac, the story of Melchizedek, and other tales. Embedding Jewish, Christian, Islamic, and other ancient traditions, these texts demonstrate mutual borrowing and influence over centuries.
