Abstract

Philo, Josephus, and the Testaments on Sexuality is the fourth of five scholarly volumes by William Loader exploring attitudes toward sexuality in Judaism and Christianity during the Greco-Roman era. In this volume Loader examines three substantial and historically important sets of documents -- the writings of Philo of Alexandria, the writings of Josephus, and the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs. Challenging stereotypes of both Philo's and Josephus's perspectives on sexuality, Loader's in-depth, detailed analyses provide an unprecedentedly comprehensive investigation of this subject.
