Descrizione

I. The book now presented to English readers has never been translated before: not only is this so, but the very existence of it has remained un known to the great mass of students for over three hundred years, although it was printed no less than five times in the course of the sixteenth century. What is it, and why is it worth reviving after SO long a period Of oblivion? It is a Bible history, reaching, in its present imperfect form, from Adam to the death Of Saul. It has come to us only in a Latin translation (made from Greek, and that again from a Hebrew original), and by an accident the name of the great Jewish philosopher of the first century, Philo, has been attached to it. Let me say at once that the attribution of it to him is wholly unfounded, and quite ridiculous: never theless I shall use his name in italics (poi/o) as a convenient short title.
