Scholars of early Judaism and early Christianity need better access to the texts of the Pseudepigrapha in their original (or extant) languages and with a critical apparatus. In many cases critical editions are prohibitively expensive or out of print, and scholars without access to a large library have been hard pressed to find them.
The OCP is intended to address this problem by publishing on-line, free-access critical texts of the Pseudepigrapha which are up-to-date and academically rigorous.
Two more texts on the OCP site have now been fully proofread and may be treated as reliable: 2 Baruch (the Greek fragments) and the surviving fragment of Eldad and Modad. More proofreading will be completed soon.
