Welcome to The Aseneth Home Page, the web site devoted to Joseph and Aseneth, a tale told about the Biblical Patriarch Joseph and his Egyptian wife Aseneth, usually classed as part of the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha. This page was created to coincide with course THM393 (Set Texts) taught the Spring Semester 1999 in the Department of Theology, University of Birmingham. You will find here an introduction, a translation, bibliography and links.
Latest Update: 17 July 2000
- Review of Ross Kraemer: two new reviews of Ross Kraemer, When Aseneth Met Joseph (by Gideon Bohak and Randall Chesnutt) added to Links and Bibliography sections.
- Bibliography: several corrections made, including clarifying authorship of articles by Christoph Burchard and Carsten Burfeind, with thanks to the latter for his help; all URLs checked and updated; some removed. New addition: Edith Humphrey's new book. More updates to come soon.
- External Links: all checked and updated.
