Ehrman further differentiates two types of pseudepigraphic text: The language of this description resonates across the pages of the book e. By this definition, an agent performs an action: A literary forgery is essentially a piece of work created or modified with the intention to deceive. Accordingly, not all pseudepigrapha that is, works wrongly attributed to authors are to be regarded as forgeries.

For Metzger, deception is crucial to the intention and enterprise of literary forgery. The focus here is on the author and her or his intentions and motivations. Ehrman is careful to separate the intention and motivations: Forgery and Counterforgery comprises two parts.

His conclusion merits full quotation: Forgery in art, literature and scholarship, as well as in more practical areas of human life and endeavor, is of course an important phenomenon which has recently received wide discussion. But no amount of investigation of individual forgeries or groups of forgeries can resolve the problem of terminology for a historian who desires a word which will characterise as a class sources that are not what they explicitly claim to be.
