Overview

Imagine being able to ask questions of a first-century Hellenistic Jewish philosopher, a contemporary of Jesus and Paul who worked to understand Mosaic thought in light of Greek ideals. What kinds of questions would you ask to better understand the theology, interpretive strategies, and historical context of the biblical writers, who often wrestled with the same task?

The writings of Philo Judaeus, who lived in Alexandria, Egypt, between approximately 20 B.C. and A.D. 40, provide a fascinating glimpse into the world of Jesus and the Apostles. In fact, Philo’s works are a goldmine of information on Jewish exegetical methods, the worldview of the apostles, and theological matters of great importance for Christianity.

We are pleased to bring you the first electronic edition of the complete works of Philo in Greek, morphologically tagged. This resource is built upon the database compiled by the Norwegian “Philo Concordance Project,” which published the first complete, printed concordance of Philo in 2000. The Logos Bible Software resource includes the complete works of Philo, in Greek, drawn from the same four text editions used to compile the concordance (Cohn & Wendland, Colson, Petit, and Paramelle). The lemmatization and morphology are also supplied by the Philo Concordance Project scholars.

See also: Works of Philo in EnglishJosephus in Greek (critical ed. with apparatus), and Apostolic Fathers in Greek and English (with morphology).

The Philo Concordance Project website introduces the project as follows:

The Philo Concordance Project is a Norwegian project aiming at producing a complete Philo electronic concordance. The word indices printed this far are printouts of a database containing all the Greek words in the writings of Philo of Alexandria, main fragments included.
The database consists of about 437, 400 tokens (text­forms) and more than 14, 000 different lemmas (the chosen entry form). A complete KWIC version would fill more than 10, 000 pages on paper. Such a large volume of material is better suited for a publication in electronic form rather than in book form.
