The Jewish philosopher Philo-Judaeus of Alexandria is an important figure in first century Judaism. Living around the same time as Jesus, Philo gives insight into the development of Jewish thought in the Greek-speaking world. His works provide a unique window into the intersection of Jewish faith and Greek philosophy that would become important in the development of Christian theology in the years and centuries that followed.
This collection pulls together two of the key twentieth century introductions to Philo-Judaeus’ life and thought. Through these volumes, you will gain the context by which to more fruitfully engage with Philo’s own writings and to understand first century Jewish thought in the Diaspora.
