Geljon (classical languages, Christelijk Gymnasium, Utrecht, the Netherlands) and Runia (historical and philosophical studies, U. of Melbourne, Australia) present a translation with extensive commentary of De agricultura, one of Philo's (20 BCE-50 CE) many surviving treatises. Among the discussions in the introduction are the place of the treatise in his corpus, the use of the Bible, the main themes of the treatise, the text, and previous scholarship on the treatise. Philo belonged to a wealthy and influential Jewish family in Alexandria. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
