The 2018 issue of The Studia Philonica Annual XXX 2018 arrived in my snail mailbox just as the SBL Annual Meeting was going on in Denver.
As usual – it contains a lot of relevant material for those interested in Philo of Alexandria and Hellenistic Judaism.
In this volume, you will find the following articles:
- Royse, James R. “Fragments of Philo of Alexandria Preserved in Pseudo-Eustathius.” pp. 1–14.
- Cover, Michael B. “A New Fragment of Philo’s Quaestiones in Exodum in Origen’s Newly Discovered Homilies on the Psalms? A Preliminary Note.” pp. 15–29.
- Sterling, Gregory E. “Philo of Alexandria’s Life of Moses: An Introduction to the Exposition of the Law.” pp. 31–45.
- Adams, Sean A. “Movement and Travel in Pilo’s Migration of Abraham: The Adaptation of Genesis and the Introduction of Metaphor.” pp. 47–70.
- Hartog, P.B. “Space and Travel in Philo’s Legatio Ad Gaium.” pp. 71–92.
- Appelbaum, Alan. “A Fresh Look at Philo’s Family.” pp. 93–113.
In addition, of course, there also is the usual Bibliographic Section, pp. 115-181, and the Book Review Section, pp. 183-217. And finally some News and Notes, and Notes on contributors.
This issue represents the 18th time I have contributed to the Bibliographic Section, and I have asked the editors to find some successor. I am always looking forward to the publication of this annual, and I will continue to do so. No scholar interested in Philo should go without this.
