Editorial Reviews


'this is a work of great quality which <...> provides us with an excellent instrument for research, and excellent reference for studies on Josephus.' Francesca Calabi, University of Pavia, Journal for the Study of Judaism, 2009 "Es handelt sich um den bisher umfassendsten und zweifelsohne besten Kommentar zu diesem Traktat, der in den letzten Jahren vermehrt in den Blickpunkt der Forschung genommen wurde ... John Barclays Kommentar zu Josephus' Apion ist ein Meilenstein in der Josephus-Forschung, an dem man sich gerne orientiert und der eine enorme Bereicherung fur die Erforschung des Judentums der griechisch-romischen Zeit insgesamt ist." Rene Bloch, Universitat Bern, Bern, Switzerland 'It is a first rate work of scholarship.I suspect that the commentary will be used principally as a reference work. It can be so used with profit. Each section is full enough to stand on its own. It will also reward those who spend the time to work through the whole.[...] I do not anticipate another English commentary to Contra Apionem for many years. Thankfully, we will not need one. Barclay's commentary will serve us well for many years.' Gregory Sterling, The Studia Philonica Annual 20 (2008)
