Philo of Alexandria

Kindle (US version), Kindle eBook, ePub (US version), ePub eBook

Philo of Alexandria was a Greek-speaking Jewish philosopher, who is now recognised as the most important representative of Hellenistic Judaism. His writings provide a concise view of the development of Judaism in the Diaspora. His essays seek to synthesise revealed faith and philosophic reason, and Philo is also regarded by Christians as a forerunner of Christian theology. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Philo’s complete extant works, with relevant illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
