The Studia Philonica Annual is a scholarly journal devoted to furthuring the study of Hellenistic Judaism, and in particular of the writings and thought of the great Hellenistic-Jewish writer Philo of Alexandria (circa 15 B.C.E. to circa 50 C.E.). The Journal appears annually in November and is available at the annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature held in that month. In November 2013 it celebrated its 25th year of existence with a special reception organized by its publisher at the Annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature in Baltimore, MD.
It contains the following sections (although not all sections appear in every volume):
Articles presenting the results of new research;
Special sections presenting discussions held at seminars and conferences;
Review articles discussing important books or research developments;
Instruments of research;
Annual bibliographies of Philonic scholarship compiled by the team of the International Philo Bibliography Project;
Reviews of books on Philo and other aspects of Hellenistic Judaism;
News and notes about conferences and other events.
The journal will consider the publication of articles on the Septuagint if they are not too technical. Articles on Josephus will be considered if they focus on his relation to Judaism and classical culture.
The Studia Philonica Annual has a renewed website at the web address of the Yale Divinity School. It was high time that it was brought up to date, and now it is very informative.
It can be visited at http://divinity.yale.edu/philo-alexandria.
