In good condition. *Name of author as it appears in the book: [Phlabiou Iosepou Hierosolymitou hiereos Ta euriskomena (romanized form)] = Flavii Josephi Hierosolymitani sacerdotisFlavius Josephus a.k.a. Joseph b. Matityahu was a first century Jewish historian and soldier. During the 66-70 C.E. Jewish revolt against Rome, he was made commander of Galilee. He surrendered to the Romans rather then commit suicide. After the war, Josephus spent the last three decades of his life living in a villa outside of Rome under imperial patronage and writing his histories. He authored The Jewish War, The Antiquities of the Jews, Against Apion and an autobiography.Josephus' historical works are among the most valuable sources for the study of 1st century Judaism and the context for early Christianity. This is due, among other things to the fact that they are products of his firsthand experience and his peculiar position as a defender of Judaism and a supporter of Rome. While Josephus was ignored by Jewish tradition (the Talmud makes no mention of him), he was embraced by the Church. This was mainly because of the Testimonium Flavianum passage from the Antiquities Book 18, which refers to Jesus and even calls him the Messiah. (Whether or not this passage was all or in part added in by a Christian scribe is a matter of some debate among scholars.) Such Church Fathers as Origin, Jerome and Ambrose, as well as the early ecclesiastical historian Eusebius quote him in their work.1) On Josephus:The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition.2001-05.The Encyclopedia Britannica, 11th edition (1911)Encyclopedia Judaica (1972)2) On the different editions:Heinz Schreckenberg: Bibliographie zu Flavius Josephus (Leiden: Brill. 1968)Heinz Schreckenberg: Bibliographie zu Flavius Josephus.
