The Studia Philonica Annual is a scholarly journal devoted to furthering the study of Hellenistic Judaism, and in particular the writings and thought of the Hellenistic-Jewish writer Philo of Alexandria (circa 15 B.C.E. to circa 50 C.E.).

David T. Runia is the Master of Queen’s College at the University of Melbourne. Gregory E. Sterling is Associate Dean of the Faculty, College of Arts and Letters, and Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame.

“The indefatigable compilers of the bibliography and the editors of this issue are again to be congratulated on producing another volume which is extremely useful not only for Philo specialists, but also for those in cognate areas not initiated into his paideia.
