Published in German.
The tale of Joseph and Aseneth gives an account of the love, conversion and preservation of Aseneth, the haughty daugther of an Egyptian priest, who married Joseph, son of Jacob (cf. Gen 41,45). This narrative of ancient Judaism is offered in a new translation on the basis of a recently revised Greek text. Besides its detailed introduction, the volume offers a wide range of essays on various themes connected with this tale: legal and economic conceptions, religious background, relations to the New Testament, narratological, ethical, psychological aspects and history of reception.
