Another review of ‘Reading Philo’

In the most recent issue of Catholic Biblical Quarterly (78 (2016):185-187), Michael Cover (Marquette University, Milwaukee, USA) has a review of Reading Philo. A Handbook to Philo of Alexandria (Grand Rapids, Mi., Eerdmans, 2014).

The review is quite positive, commenting briefly on the various chapters of the book, and ends up with the following conclusion:

“In sum, despite some niggling concerns, any student of Philo will receive much from reading this volume. It is more than a handbook: it is a contribution, a celebration, and an invitation. In the words of its editor: Tolle lege.
