Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms of the book titled Philo of Alexandria On Virtues. The first three sections of this index do not contain all references, but only include texts cited. Page numbers joined by a dash indicate a reference on each of the pages concerned. Philo of Alexandria was a member of one of the most prominent families of the large and influential Jewish community in Alexandria. One of the factors that made Philo so attractive to Christians was the way that he combined Greek philosophy, especially Middle Platonism, with exegesis. The eclectic nature of his thought and the size of his corpus make his writings a particularly important source for our understanding of several Hellenistic philosophical traditions. The combination of Middle Platonism and Jewish exegesis also makes Philo important for the study of Gnosticism.

Keywords:Gnosticism; Greek philosophy; Philo of Alexandria
