Josephus, soldier, statesman, historian, was a Jew born at Jerusalem about 37 CE. A man of high descent, he early became learned in Jewish law and Greek literature and was a Pharisee. After pleading in Rome the cause of some Jewish priests he returned to Jerusalem and in 66 tried to prevent revolt against Rome, managing for the Jews the affairs of Galilee. In the troubles which followed he made his peace with Vespasian. Present at the siege of Jerusalem by Titus, he received favours from these two as emperors and from Domitian and assumed their family name Flavius. He died after 97.

As a historical source Josephus is invaluable. His major works are: History of the Jewish War, in seven books, from 170 BCE to his own time, first written in Aramaic but translated by himself into the Greek we now have; and Jewish Antiquities, in twenty books, from the creation of the world to 66 CE. The Loeb Classical Library edition of the works of Josephus also includes the autobiographical Life and his treatise Against Apion.

About the Author:

FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS (A.D. 37 – ca. 94), priest, soldier, scholar, was born Joseph ben Mattathias in Jerusalem. In his 20s he was sent to Rome to negotiate with Nero the release of Jewish prisoners, but returned to a Judaea seething with revolt. He reluctantly assumed command of Jewish rebels, even though he considered the cause hopeless. At Jotapata he was taken captive by Vespasian but so impressed him and his son, Titus, that he was freed. He spent the remainder of the war as an eyewitness to events and tried in vain to negotiate a peaceful settlement to the siege of Jerusalem. When Vespasian became Emperor, he adopted Josephus into his family and thus "Flavius Josephus" spent his remaining years as a court scholar.

CHARLTON GRIFFIN is one of the great readers of our time. His classical theatre training combined with his wonderful, incisive interpretations of great literature make him a unique talent. Mr. Griffin's vocal performance is vibrant, soothing, compelling, and hypnotic. Among other honors, he has twice received the Audie Award for Classic Fiction.
