Philo of Alexandria - Bibliography

Each volume of The Studia Philonica Annual contains an annotated bibliography of Philonic studies prepared by the team of the International Philo Bibliography Project convened by David T. Runia. The members of the team at the present time are:

  • ​Marta Alesso ( Buenos Aires ): for scholarship written in Spanish/ Portuguese
  • Ellen Birnbaum ( Cambridge MA ): for scholarship written in English
  • Albert C. Geljon ( Utrecht ): for scholarship written in English and Dutch
  • Heleen M. Keizer ( Monza ): for scholarship written in Italian
  • Olivier Munnich (Paris): for scholarship written in French
  • Maren Niehoff ( Jerusalem ): for scholarship written in Hebrew
  • Justin Rogers (Tennessee): for scholarship written in English
  • David T. Runia ( Melbourne ): for scholarship written in English
  • Beatrice Wyss (Fribourg): for scholarship written in German
  • Sami Yli-Karjanmaa ( Helsinki ): for scholarship written in Scandinavian languages

For more information on these scholars (except Prof. Wyss) see the notes on contributors for volume 35, 2023.

Each annual bibliography consists of three parts:

  1. An annotated bibliography of scholarship on Philo published in the year three years prior to publication of the volume (i.e. in 2023 the year 2020);
  2. Annotated addenda consisting of publications of previous years that had been missed or unavailable;
  3. Provisional unannotated bibliographies of scholarship of Philo published in the three previous years prior to the publication of the volume (i.e. in 2023 the publications in the years 2021, 2022, 2023).
