The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament in English

Volume One: The Apocrypha

by R H Charles
Publication Date: 24/03/2020
2020 Reprint of the 1913 Edition. Volume One Only, the Aprocrypha. Volume Two, the Pseudepigrapha is published separately and forthcoming with ISBN 978-1-68422-444-9. Full facsimile of the original edition and not reproduced with Optical Recognition software. Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha are two separate groups of works dating primarily from the period of the Second Temple. The name "Apocrypha" is applied to a collection of books not included in the canon of the Bible although they are incorporated in the canon of the Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches.

Robert Henry Charles (1855-1931) was an Irish biblical scholar and theologian. He left parochial work in 1889 to devote himself to biblical research and became the greatest authority of his time in matters of Jewish eschatology and apocrypha. He devoted his life to biblical research, and he became one of the primary authorities on matters of Jewish culture and theology, eschatology in particular. In 1913, Charles published an English translation of the Apocryphal (or Deuterocanonical) books of the Bible, including those not typically printed in Bibles that include the Apocrypha. This was followed by volume two of the same series, which covered the Pseudepigrapha. His translations of the Book of Enoch and the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs especially are still widely used.
