The Apocalypse of Daniel is an ancient pseudepigraphic text, which is allegedly attributed to the Hebrew prophet Daniel, and so is associated with the Hebrew Bible.However, no Jewish or Christian group regards this text as canonical or as authoritative scripture. The text describes one particular vision of Daniel, regarding the appearance and activities of the Antichrist before the Day of Judgement. The text is divided into fourteen chapters, with chapters 1-7 describing historical events from the time; and chapters 8-14 predicting the coming of the Antichrist.

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.
