This book studies the influence of Hellenism and Greco-Roman philosophy on Philo of Alexandria's view of the Mosaic law. In particular, the book examines how Philo integrated Greco-Roman conceptions of law, such as Unwritten Law, the Law of Nature, and the "Living Law", into his understanding of the Mosaic law of the Jews and the lives of the Patriarchs.
Philo of Alexandria On Virtues: Introduction, Translation, and Commentary (repost)

Philo of Alexandria On Virtues: Introduction, Translation, and Commentary By Walter T. Wilson
English | 2010 | 479 Pages | ISBN: 9004189076 | PDF | 2 MB

In the treatise On Virtues (part of his so-called Exposition of the Law), Philo of Alexandria demonstrates how Moses, his laws, and the nation constituted by these laws each embody certain widely-discussed moral values, specifically, courage (andreia), humanity (philanthropia), repentance (metanoia), and nobility (eugeneia). Although it makes extensive use of material drawn from the Pentateuch, what the treatise provides is far more than a commentary on scripture. Rather, it contributes to a sophisticated apologetic reconstruction of Jewish origins, idealized according to the principles of both Greek philosophy and Roman political culture. Guided by such principles, Philo endeavors to establish the moral, legal, and social status of Judaism within the Greco-Roman world.

"Off the Straight Path": Illicit Sex, Law, and Community in Ottoman Aleppo (Gender, Culture, and Politics in the Middle East)

"Off the Straight Path": Illicit Sex, Law, and Community in Ottoman Aleppo (Gender, Culture, and Politics in the Middle East) by Elyse Semerdijan
English | December 8th, 2008 | ASIN: B002AMVBR2, ISBN: 0815634633, 0815631731 | 288 Pages | EPUB | 2.79 MB

The legal treatment of sexual behavior is a subject that receives little scholarly attention in the field of Middle East women’s studies. Important questions about the relationship between sexuality and the law and about the societies enforcing that relationship are rarely addressed in the current literature. Elyse Semerdjian’s "Off the Straight Path" takes a bold step toward filling that gap, offering a fascinating look at the historical progression of Islamic law’s treatment of illicit sex.
