Studia Philonica Annual XXV, 2013 is on its way!

The Studia Philonica Annual XXV, 2013 is on its way, and in fact is being published these days. I have not received my copy yet; it use to take some time to get to Norway…..

This year the Annual also can celebrate their 25 years – a silver anniversary! As their editors are saying in a brief note in the forthcoming issue – and I quote it With approaval; “The first volume was published in 1989 by Scholars Press as volume 185 of Brown Judaic Series. It was a continuation of the earlier journal Studia Philonica, of which six issues were published in the years 1971–1980. In the past quarter of a century the Annual has served as a valued vehicle and instrument for Research on Philo and Hellenistic Judaism. Through its articles, special sections, bibliographical section and book reviews, it has provided scholars with up-to-date information on developments in studies on Philo and his wider context, and in so doing has made a huge contribution to Philo studies world-wide.”

The issue of this year will present these studies:
