pseudonymous
type of work

A pseudonymous work is a work that is where the actual author is unknown, but where there is an inaccurate author's name attached to the work. This contrasts with anonymous works where no author's name was ascribed, even if an author was later attached to the work (such as the Gospel of John). Some works are suspected of being pseudonymous by some scholars (such as the book of Colossians in the New Testament), but are believed to be authentic by others, and these are not included here.
