Inscribed by the author on the front blank: "With happy memories from the 'bai' to the 'ka'. Erwin R. Goodenough." From the publisher: "Goodenough's monograph reconstructs the political activity and thinking of Philo Judaeus [Philo of Alexandria], who showed the conflicting attitudes of a man subject to Roman rule in Alexandria and whose criticisms and adjustments to his audiences are here brought out for the first time. The bibliography, by both Goodhart and Goodenough, is the most complete ever assembled for Philo. Manuscripts, editions and translations are listed, as well as literature about Philo. The elaborate classification of the literature according to subjects makes it a convenient reference for all who are studying Hellenistic Judaism, the New Testament, and Hellenistic Philosophy and Religion."
