The Studia Philonica Annual is a scholarly journal devoted
to furthuring the study of Hellenistic Judaism, and in particular
of the writings and thought of the great Hellenistic-Jewish writer
Philo of Alexandria (circa 15 B.C.E. to circa 50 C.E.). The Journal
appears annually in November
and is available at the annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature held in that month
. It contains the following sections
(although not all sections appear in every volume):
||Articles presenting the results of new research;
||Special sections presenting discussions held at seminars and conferences;
||Review articles discussing important books or research developments;
||Instruments of research;
||Annual bibliographies of Philonic scholarship compiled by the team of the International Philo Bibliography Project;
||Reviews of books on Philo and other aspects of Hellenistic Judaism;
||News and notes about conferences and other events.
The journal will consider the publication of articles on the
Septuagint if they are not too technical. Articles on Josephus
will be considered if they focus on his relation to Judaism and
The Studia Philonica Annual is closely associated with
the Philo of Alexandria Group that convenes annually at the AAR/SBL
meetings in North America.
