The Philo of Alexandria Scripture Index identifies and lists every instance in which Philo of Alexandria cites or alludes to passages from Jewish Scripture. With 7,831 references, this book is the most comprehensive study of its kind to date. Unlike other volumes with a single index of Philo’s citations and allusions organized by biblical book, this volume includes a second index that follows Philo’s treatise order. This second format allows students and scholars easily to examine Philo’s engagement with Scripture in individual treatises and to interrogate how Philo collected and grouped intertexts. In addition to the indices, Sean A. Adams and Zanne Domoney-Lyttle provide an introduction to their methodology and their selection of texts, including Philo’s fragmentary works and those that survive only in the Armenian tradition.

Sean A. Adams is Professor of New Testament and Ancient Culture at the University of Glasgow. He is the author of Greek Genres and Jewish Authors (2020), Baruch and The Epistle of Jeremiah (2014), and a dozen articles on Philo of Alexandria.

Zanne Domoney-Lyttle is an Affiliate of Glasgow University. She is the author of The Bible and Comics: Women, Power and Representation in Graphic Narratives (2023) and coeditor of Abraham in Jewish and Early Christian Literature (2019).
