Philo's Place in Judaism: A Study of Conceptions of Abraham in Jewish Literature

New York: KTAV, 1971. Augmented edition. Hardcover. Quarto. XXIX, [3], 232pp. Original blue cloth with gold lettering on spine and front cover. This work is a very exhaustive analysis of the references to Abraham in Apocryphal and Rabbinic literature, as compared with the references in the Philonic corpus, to establish a series of conclusions supporting the thesis that Alexandrian Judaism was not a minor variant of Palestinian Judaism but was the product of "as complete a hellenization as was possible for a group which retained throughout its loyalty to the Torah." Minor sunning and shelf wear along edges of binding. Offsetting on front free endpaper. Binding in overall good to good+, interior in good+ to very good condition. g. Item #34662
