    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    During the reign of Ptolemaios VI Philometor (180–145 BCE), the Jewish author Aristobulos wrote an extensive text that he addressed to the ruler personally, which dealt with the correct interpretation of the Pentateuch. The few preserved fragments still offer multifaceted insights on the early phase of Jewish exegesis – 200 years before Philo, in the conflicted world of the Alexandrine Greeks and Egyptians.
