Resurrection of the Dead in Early Judaism, 200 BCE-CE 200

C. D. Elledge

  • Offers analysis of the formation and development in early Judaism of a belief in a future resurrection
  • Draws on evidence from the Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, the Dead Sea Scrolls, inscriptions, and archaeology
  • Considers the origins of the belief, the diversity of early ideas about resurrection, the roles played by resurrection within particular religious groups, the means by which a controversial idea became legitimated, and the problems arising from the interpretation of contested evidence
