An Introduction to Sayings Collections

Walter T. Wilson

“At a time when there is lively debate about the category ‘wisdom literature,’ Walter Wilson expands the debate by putting proverbial and gnomic texts of the Jewish and Christian traditions in conversation with a wide corpus of Greco-Roman and Near Eastern sayings collections. While he does not simply repeat traditional categorizations, he shows that there is much to be gained by a generic approach to wisdom literature, especially when it is informed by all the relevant comparative material from the ancient world.”

— John J. Collins
Yale University

“This wide-ranging volume offers students at all levels an authoritative guide to a complex and fascinating genre. It will become an indispensable companion for anyone interested in ancient wisdom literature and its social context.”
— Teresa Morgan
University of Oxford
