Philo at SBL I (corrected)

Due to the fact that Sarah Pearce is not able to attend the SBL Annual Meeting this year, there will be a slight change in the Philo session on Sunday morning:
S18-137 Philo of Alexandria
11/18/2012 9:00 AM to 11:45 AM
Room: S103d – McCormick Place
Theme: Philo’s Graeco-Roman Readers

The aim of this panel is to open up new evidence or revisit old questions about who read and made use of Philo’s writings in the past.
