68673Scholars working in the field of Philo and ancient Judaism, will certainly know the Compendia Rerum ad Ioudaicarum series. Now these great books are also available online:

“The online collection of the Compendia Rerum Iudaicarum ad Novum Testamentum, designed in the 1960s as a structured set of handbooks on ‘matters Jewish’ illuminating the origins of Christianity, and formerly published by Van Gorcum, presents monographs and collections of essays originally published in three sections: • Section 1 – The Jewish people in the First Century: historical geography, political history, social, cultural and religious life and institutions • Section 2 – The Literature of the Jewish People in the Period of the Second Temple and the Talmud • Section 3 – Jewish Traditions in Early Christian Literature. From 2009 on, the series is continued by way of monographs, and CRINT 12, 13 and 14 have appeared.”

For Philo scholars and other interested in Philo, these items are especially interesting:

The Jewish People in the First Century, Volume 1
Historical Geography, Political History, Social, Cultural and Religious Life and Institutions. Section One, Volume One,

containing, inter alia, these chapters:

The Jewish Diaspora

The next volume has two chapters, especially well related to the Diaspora,

The Social and Economic Status of the Jews in the Diaspora
Greek in Palestine and the Diaspora
The Jews in Greek and Latin Literature

Another volume is completely devoted to Philo:

Jewish Traditions in Early Christian Literature, Volume 3 Philo in Early Christian Literature

Then we have this volume:

Containing the wellknown article on Philo by Peder Borgen:
