Reading Group on Philo of Alexandria

Reading Group on Philo of Alexandria

(in Greek and English, but with Greek specialists to advise)


This group is meeting in 2017-2018.

For this year the group will meet on Mondays at 4.00pm. Room 4 of the Faculty of Divinity. We will begin by reading On the migration of Abraham (Loeb vol. IV).

Note: We will not meet when the Patristics Seminar meets: Oct 16, Oct 30, Nov 13.

This group reads through selected works of Philo in Greek but with an accompanying translation for those who need it. In 2014-2015 we read Creation of the World (de opificio mundi), and in 2015-2016 we read On Drunkenness (de ebrietate).

All welcome.

If possible, please bring along your own copy. To request a copy of the text, please email if you plan to attend.
