English summary: The Apocalypse of Moses is a story about the life of Adam and Eve after they had been driven out of paradise. This work provides the text of the Apocalypse of Moses along with a comprehensive apparatus of textual criticism, a German translation and a commentary which reveals the narrative structures and focuses on the question of the relationship between the biblical stories about Adam and Eve and those in the Apocalypse of Moses. Whose idea was it to tell these stories, which at times strike us as quite bizarre, when the canonical text was available? Jan Dochhorn proves the Jewish origins of the Apocalypse of Moses and shows that it is based almost throughout on exegetical observations of the Hebrew bible text.
