Philo's Perception of Women

Full Product Description

Philo was a Greek-educated but observant Jew who lived during the time of Jesus and Paul. According to the author, Philo's writings synthesized earlier Greek and Jewish perceptions of women. Although Philo accepts the female as good because created by God, Sly argues that Philo nevertheless saw women as necessarily subservient and under the control of men. Thus his writings express some of the earliest sources for repressive attitudes towards women, and suggest that similar attitudes exhibited by the church fathers may be traced through Philo to earlier traditions. n

Philo's Perception of Women by Dorothy Sly was published by Brown Judaic Studies in October 2015. The ISBN for Philo's Perception of Women is 9781930675988.
