Elijah Materials Online

In advance of Friday's session on the Coptic Apocalypse of Elijah, readers may be interested in the coverage of Elijah in my 1998 Divine Mediator Figures in the Biblical World course. Here is the abstract of an essay by Christopher Maxwell on Elijah as a divine mediator. And here is a bibliography that collects many primary source references to Elijah as well as a now slightly-dated list of secondary references. The bibliography on the Apocalypse of Elijah for our current OT Pseudepigrapha course is here.

There is little else online on the Apocalypse of Elijah, but do have a look at Peter Kirby's page at his useful Early Jewish Writings site.
