WHERE THE SECOND TEMPLE JEWISH CALENDRICAL TRADITIONS COULD BE FOUND (outside Rabbinic and Hekhalot traditions).
WHAT IS STUDIED MORE OR LESS SUCCESSFULLY (but often without details):
1. 1 Enoch (Neugebauer—Albani—Ben Dov...),
2. some DSS (many people),
3. Jubilees (Jaubert, Glessmer...),
4. 2 Enoch (Lourié),
5. 3 Baruch (Lourié),
6. Apocalypse of Abraham (Lourié),
7. 4 Ezra (Lourié, the paper is still unfinished),
8. 2 Baruch (Bogaert—Lourié, the paper is still unfinished),
9. Barsabas of Jerusalem (Lourié).
10. Epistle to the Hebrews (Lourié).
11. Tobit (Lourié).
12. The Liturgy of the Seventh Sabbath of Beta Israel (Lourié, still unfinished).
HOTLY DISPUTED (ACTUALLY OR POTENTIALLY) TOPICS (success will depend on our knowledge of Jewish traditions outside these disputed points):
13. Flood narrative,
14. Passion narrative (gospels),
15. Other calendrical stuff in gospels and Acts,
16. 1, 2 Paraleipomena, Ezra, Nehemiah, 1 Baruch,
18. Five Megilloth.
WHAT SEEMS TO BE STUDIED WITH ALREADY ESTABLISHED METHODS:
19. Apocalypse of John (I prepared a study but not finished yet).
20. Judith (Bogaert started, I hope to continue somewhere).
21. Joseph and Aseneth (I prepared a study but not finished yet).
22. 3 Maccabees (I prepared a study but not finished yet).
23. The Jewish core of the Earliest Islamic calendar (I have a raw idea).
WHAT SEEMS TO BE STUDIED WITH SOME ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT INSIGHTS:
24. Protevangelium of James (it’s in my plans).
25. 4 Baruch = Paraleipomena Ieremiae (I tried unsuccessfully; some link is missing).
26. Esther (several interesting attempts were done but I still consider the problem unresolved).
27. Ps.-Philo, Liber Antiquitatis Biblicarum (exceptionally rich source but absolutely unexplored).
28. Ps.-Philo, Sermon on Jonas, in Armenian (the crucial place is still unclear in Armenian).
29. “Pastor” of Hermas (it’s in my plans).
30. 4 Maccabees (unexplored).
31. Teezaza Sanbat, a Falasha text (unexplored).
32. Epistula Apostolorum (many efforts without success, including my own ones).
33. Apocalypse of Peter ?
NON-JEWISH TRADITIONS POTENTIALLY CONNECTED TO THE SECOND TEMPLE JEWISH ONES (APART FROM ISLAMIC AND BETA ISRAEL)
34. The Jewish calendar encapsulated in the Ethiopian Easter computus (Neugebauer, Lourié).
35. Calendar of Abba Giyorgis Saglawi (leader of an archaizing = “Judaizing” Ethiopian movement, early 15th cent) (Lourié, but in Russian!).
36. Icelandic 364-day calendar (I consider it as having Celtic origin) and the calendar of the Celtic Church (Lourié, 2-page summary published).
37. Sogdian calendrical fragments (Henning 1948) (Neugebauer—Ben Dov... but there is still a room for some work) and other Manichaic sources.
38. Mandaic ?
