Erotapokriseis-literature has thus far been neglected by most scholars. This book intends to explore this kind of literature and to introduce it to a wider audience. Erotapokriseis--or quaestiones, as they were called in Latin--occur in various types of literature, but these all have in common that they use the form of questions and answers in one way or another. The French and English contributions in this volume are the result of an international symposium held in Utrecht, October 2003. A small number of specialists investigated the erotapokriseis in various fields of research, including Jewish, Greek, Latin and Syriac literature. Thus, they composed an elucidating image of these literary works. Although the last word has not been said about the erotapokriseis, this volume certainly is a major step forward in our understanding of these writings.
