Pseudepigrapha are falsely-attributed works, texts whose claimed author is not the true author, or a work whose real author attributed it to a figure of the past. Thus a widely accepted but incorrect attribution of authorship may make a completely authentic text pseudepigraphical which requires the discipline of literary criticism.
In biblical studies, the term pseudepigrapha typically refers to an assorted collection of Jewish religious works thought to be written between 300 BC to 300 AD.
