Chapter Summary

In this chapter author reacts to two articles in the 2005 issue of the Studia Philonica Annual. The first one is Frank Shaw's study of Caligula's employment of the name of the God of the Jews, the second is Allen Kerkeslager's long contribution on the question of the role of three influential Greeks in the violent events of 38 ce in Alexandria. In his fine study, Shaw discusses the meaning of the first sight puzzling sentence in the Legatio 353, where Philo has Caligula address the Jews as haters of the gods. Allen Kerkeslager's article is a very acute attempt to prove that the three Greeks who play such an important role in In Flaccum, Dionysius, Lampo, and Isidorus, were not at all involved in the violence of 38 ce for the simple reason that none of them were in Alexandria in that year.
