This monograph deals with historical hermeneutics. The author investigates the methods and principles found in the first century CE book of Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum (LAB), an anonymous chronicle transmitted in the name of Philo of Alexandria bearing the soubriquet Pseudo-Philo. This book belongs to the category known as rewritten Bible. What we have here as in the case of Chronicles, the Animal Vision in 1 Enoch 85-90, Jubilees, Genesis Apocryphon, 1 Esdras and Josephus' Antiquities, is "an impressive volume of narrative exegesis in which the line between interpreting the ancient text and responding to contemporary culture is largely hidden from view" (p 331).
