The sections which examine Hellenistic Judaism investigate themes from Greek philosophy, like reason controlling the passions, which are also crucial in shaping Philos perception of the feminine.

The manner in which Jewish authors of this period attempt to synthesize Old Testament with Greek philosophical themes like creation/cosmology receives specific treatment. Essays dealing with Gnosticism re-examine themes from Greek philosophers like Plato and Aristotle in Gnostic documents, but also look at the role of Hellenistic Judaism with its interests in Sophia. Co-published with the Institute for Christian Studies.
