Long central to the canon of British Romantic literature, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth’s Lyrical Ballads is a fascinating case study in the history of poetry, publishing, and authorship. This Broadview edition is the first to reprint both the 1798 and the 1800 editions of Lyrical Ballads in their entirety. In the appendices to this Broadview edition, reviews, correspondence, and a selection of contemporary verse and prose situate the work within the popular and experimental literature of its time, and allow readers to trace the work’s transformations in response to the pressures of the literary marketplace.

In recent years the so-called apocryphal literature has increasingly drawn the attention of scholars interested in early Christianity, ancient history and the ancient novel. New editions of the most important texts have already appeared or are being prepared. We are therefore pleased to announce a new series, Studies on Early Christian Apocrypha (formerly called Studies on the Apocryphal Acts of the Apostles). The editors welcome contributions on individual aspects of the main texts, be it proceedings of conferences or monographs. Jan N. Bremmer is Professor of Religious Studies at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen and a well-known expert on Greek and Roman religion as well as Early Christianity. This book is one of the first modern collections of studies on important aspects of the Pseudo-Clementines, which occupy a special place among the early Christian writings, due to their complicated origin and their relevance in reconstructing Jewish Christianity. The volume starts with two chapters which discuss the problems of the date, place, text and genre of the Pseudo-Clementines. The majority of chapters focus on various aspects and passages of the Homilies and Recognitions. In the Homilies we look at philanthropy, the relationship between Judaism an Hellenism. Appion and Annoubion, Enochic traditions, Orphic cosmogonies, philosophical sources, the theory of two ways and the conversion of families. In the Recognitions we look at the theme of recognition, the doctrine of free will, figures of speech, the Sadducees and the narrative intention of speeches. Finally, both works are interrogated on their uses of centre and periphery. The volume concludes with a discussion of Clement in the Legenda Aurea and, as has become customary, with an extensive bibliography and index.
