This volume provides the first translation into any modern language of Pseudo-Gregory of Nyssa s Testimonies against the Jews, a late fourth-century C.E. example of the scriptural testimonia genre. In this genre early Christians compiled biblical quotations, arranged under topical headings and accompanied by interpretive remarks, that functioned as testimonies" in support of basic Christian beliefs and claims. In his notes Albl describes a unified yet flexible tradition that spread over the entire Mediterranean region, was expressed in Greek, Latin, and other languages, and flourished from the first century well beyond the fifth century. This volume, with Greek text and English translation on facing pages, will enable and stimulate greater interest and research in a neglected area of scholarship.Paperback edition is available from the Society of Biblical Literature (www.sbl-site.org)."
