This volume illuminates the full extent of the corpus of ancient and mediaeval apocryphal Daniel literature. It is the first study to examine the Daniel legenda, the apocryphal apocalypses, and the prognostica as discrete categories of texts and to evaluate their generic relationship to the biblical Book of Daniel. Special emphases include the identification of the texts and their manuscript evidence as well as the study of late antique and early mediaeval apocalyptic literature attributed to Daniel. This volume will be of particular interest to biblical scholars and to those who specialise in biblical apocrypha and pseudepigrapha.ContentsCh. 1 The apocryphal Daniel literature: parameters of the study Ch. 2 The story of Daniel in the book of Daniel and in the Daniel legenda Ch. 3 The apocryphal Daniel apocalypses Ch. 4 The Daniel prognostica Ch. 5 General observations and conclusions Ch. 6 The apocryphal Daniel literature: inventory and bibliography
