Monograph Series

Brown Judaic Studies also publishes monographs on Philo and related subjects in Hellenistic Judaism. These form the sub-series The Studia Philonica Monograph Series.

The editorial structure of the series is parallel to that for the Annual. Final responsibility lies once again with
Ross Kraemer of Brown University. Editor of the series is David Hay, who is assisted by the same Advisory board that has been instituted for the Annual.

Scholars are encouraged to submit manuscripts on Philo and Hellenistic Judaism to Professor Hay, who will be willing to furnish more information on conditions and requirements. Monographs will only be considered if written in the English language (this applies less rigidly for collected essays). English translations of works written in other languages are warmly encouraged. Authors who are not native speakers must ensure that their English is fluent and correct.

So far five monographs have appeared in the series:

  • J. Kenny (ed.), The School of Moses: Studies in Philo and Hellenistic Religion in Memory of Horst R. Moehring , Brown Judaic Studies 304, Studia Philonica Monographs 1 (Atlanta GA 1995), xi + 182 pages.
  • E. Birnbaum, The Place of Judaism in Philo's Thought: Israel, Jews, and Proselytes, Brown Judaic Studies 290, Studia Philonica Monographs 2 (Atlanta GA 1996), xviii + 262 pages.
  • M. Alexandre Jr., Rhetorical Argumentation in Philo of Alexandria, Brown Judaic Studies 322, Studia Philonica Monographs 3 (Atlanta 1999), xx + 322 pages
