The Formation of the Jewish Canon

Yale University Press

Scholars are deeply divided between those who believe that the canon was closed in the Persian or Maccabean period and those who consider that the canon stayed open well into the centuries after the turning of the era. This chapter examines scholarly disagreements about the question of how the development of the canon should be discussed. It also considers the three-stage theory and criticism of that theory.

Keywords:   scholarly opinion, canon, Persian period, Maccabean period, three-stage theory
