Philo of Alexandria's exposition of the Tenth Commandment by Philo( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his comprehensive exposition of the Tenth Commandment (Spec. 4.79-131), Philo considers the prohibition 'You shall not desire': what sort of desire it prohibits (and why) and how the Mosaic dietary laws collectively enforce that prohibition. This volume offers the first complete study of Philo's exposition, beginning with an overview of its content, context, and place in previous research. In-depth studies of Philo's concept of desire and his concept of self-control provide background and demonstrate Philo's fundamental agreement with contemporary Middle-Platonic moral psychology, especially in his theory of emotion (pathos). A new translation of the exposition, with commentary, offers a definitive explanation of Philo's view of the Tenth Commandment, including precisely the sort of excessive desire it targets and how the dietary laws work as practical exercises for training the soul in self-control."--Publisher's description
Philo, with an English translation by Philo( Book )

83 editions published between 1929 and 1991 in 6 languages and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The philosopher Philo was born about 20 BCE to a prominent Jewish family in Alexandria, the chief home of the Jewish Diaspora as well as the chief center of Hellenistic culture; he was trained in Greek as well as Jewish learning. In attempting to reconcile biblical teachings with Greek philosophy he developed ideas that had wide influence on Christian and Jewish religious thought

Philo of Alexandria, On cultivation by Philo( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Jewish exegete and philosopher Philo of Alexandria has long been famous for his allegorical treatises on the Greek Bible. The present volume contains the first translation and commentary in English on his treatise De agricultura (On cultivation), which gives an elaborate allegorical interpretation of Genesis 9:20. Noah's role as a cultivator is analysed in terms of the ethical and spiritual quest of the soul making progress towards its goal. The translation renders Philo's baroque Greek into readable modern English. The commentary pays particular attention to the treatise's structure, its biblical basis and its exegetical and philosophical contents. The volume will be valuable for the insights it gives into an unusual but highly influential method of biblical interpretation."--Publisher's description
The works of Philo : complete and unabridged by Philo( Book )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While it would not be correct to say that Philo's works have been "lost"--Scholars have always known and used Philo--they have essentially been "misplaced" as far as the average student of the Bible is concerned. Now the translation of the eminent classicist C.D. Yonge is available in an affordable, easy-to-read edition, with a new foreword and newly translated passages, and containing supposed fragments of Philo's writings from ancient authors such as John of Damascus. The title and arrangement of the writings have been standardized according to scholarly conventions. A contemporary of Paul and Jesus, Philo Judaeus, of Alexandria, Egypt, is unquestionably among the most important writers for historians and students of Hellenistic Judaism and early Christianity. Although Philo does not explicitly mention Jesus, or Paul, or any of the followers of Jesus, Philo lived in their world. It is from Philo, for example, that we learn about how, like the Gospel of John, Jews (and Greeks) in the Greco-Roman world spoke of the creative force of God as God's Logos. Philo, too, employs interpretive strategies that parallel those of the author of Hebrews. Most scholars would agree that Philo and the author of Hebrews are drawing from the same, or at least similar, traditions of Hellenistic Judaism. With these kind of connections to the world of Judaism and early Christianity, Philo cannot be ignored

On the creation of the cosmos according to Moses by Philo( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study is the first volume in the new Philo of Alexandria Commentary Series. It contains a new English translation of Philo's famous treatise on the creation of the cosmos (the first for seventy years), and the first ever commentary in English." "In this work the Jewish exegete and philosopher gives a selective exegesis of the Mosaic creation account and the events in Paradise as recorded in Genesis 1-3. It is the first preserved example of Hexaemeral literature, and had a profound influence on early Christian thought." "The commentary aims to make Philo's thought accessible to readers such as graduate students who are just beginning to read him, but also contains much material that will be of interest to specialists in Hellenistic Judaism, ancient philosophy and patristic literature."--Jacket
