Philo of Alexandria (circa 20 B.C.E. – 50 C.E.) was a Hellenistic philosopher. Philo lived during a time of increasing unrest and inter-ethnic tensions in Alexandria, a Roman province of Egypt. He is best known for his allegorical interpretations of the Hebrew Bible. These interpretations found common ground with Greek philosophy, and presented characters in the Bible as universal aspects of the human experience.
Quotes by Philo of Alexandria…
That which is divine is invisible.
Households, cities, countries, and nations have enjoyed great happiness when a single individual has taken heed of the Good and Beautiful. Such men not only liberate themselves; they fill those they meet with a free mind.
