Outside the sessions of the Philo group sessions mentioned below, Philo is referred to or studied in many other papers. Below is a review of some of the other instances I have discovered that Philo is dealt with by way of some discussions of issues found in his books and in other comparable works. I cannot claim to have found all the papers relevant, but here are some:
- in the S26-117 (Nov 26,a session on Hellenistic Judaism, at 11/26/2013 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM Room: 334 – Convention Center, where the theme i Myth and History in Hellenistic Judaism , Sandra Gambetti, College of Staten Island, will be presiding, and Virginia Wayland, University of Pennsylvania, will read a paper on History as Paideia in Philo of Alexandria’s Life of Moses (25 min);
- Of the five papers read in the S26-126 Session on Pauline Epistles (11/26/2013 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM Room: 346 – Convention Center), there will be two papers dealing with Philo’s thoughts: Stefan Nordgaard from Københavns Universitet/University of Copenhagen, will read a paper on Paul, Philo, and the Genesis of the Law: The Case of Galatians (25 min), and G. Anthony Keddie, University of Texas at Austin, will deal somewhat with Philo in his paper on Freedom, Slavery, Torah: The Freedom Paradigm and the Mosaic Law in 2 Cor 3:1-4:6 (25 min).
