Chapter Summary

This index section presents a list of terms that occur in the book The Alexandrian Riots of 38 C.E. and the Persecution of the Jews: A Historical Reconstruction. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order from A to Z. In the summer of 38 C.E., the multiethnic city of Alexandria in Egypt became a theater of severe disorder. Its well-established Jewish community was attacked and violently persecuted: shops were pillaged and destroyed, meeting houses were burnt down, and people were tortured and murdered. Philo of Alexandria, the Jewish philosopher who lived through those events, is the only witness to these facts and he describes them in two works, In Flaccum and Legatio ad Gaium. Studies of the Alexandrian riots of 38 C.E. are an important part of a larger issue, namely the rights of Diaspora Jews in the Greco-Roman period.

Keywords: Diaspora Jews; In Flaccum ; Legatio ad Gaium; Philo of Alexandria
