Philo of Alexandria (20 B.C.E.-40 C.E.) is one of the most important representatives of Hellenistic Judaism. His writings provide the clearest view of the development of Judaism in the Diaspora and shed important light on New Testament backgrounds.This new reference work is the first and only available index to all the Greek words in the writings of Philo, main fragments included. Designed specifically to aid with research on Philo, this lemmatized and computer-generated concordance lists each Greek word alphabetically, followed by an exhaustive listing of every occurrence of the term within Philo's extensive corpus.Based on the four major text editions of Philo's writings_Cohn-Wendland (1896-1915), Colson (1941), Petit (1978), and Paramelle (1984)_this index facilitates word study by including contracted words and words with variant spellings in a single listing. It also notes supplementary lemmas and other grammatical variations in brackets after the primary entry.A product of the Norwegian Philo Concordance Project begun in the late 1960s by Peder Borgen (University of Trondheim), with development assistance from Kre Fuglseth (University of Trondheim) and Roald Skarsten (University of Bergen), The Philo Index is a must for research and academic libraries and will be indispensable for scholars and students of Philo.
