This work is the first systematic attempt to apply retroversion to Slavonic pseudepigrapha. Slavonic literary tradition preserved translations of many important documents of ancient religious thought. The elaboration of principles and tools for the retroversion of these writings is critical for the proper understanding of the originals. This study contains a new translation of the Apocalypse of Abraham and is organized formally as a discussion of separate problematic segments of the text, classified according to the type of the retroverted phenomena. It will be of interest to those studying Jewish literature of the Second Temple period, early Christianity, history of religious thought, medieval Slavonic literature and linguistics, and ancient and medieval translation techniques.Table of ContentsApocalypse of Abraham: translation Ch. 1 Greek vorlage Graphic misinterpretations Morphological calques Semantic calques Syntactic Hellenisms Phraseological Hellenisms Ch. 2 Semitic original Hebrew or Aramaic?
