Josephus in his twenty-one volume Antiquities of the Jews, completed during the last year of the reign of the Emperor Flavius Domitian. In expounding Jewish history, law and custom, he is entering... More > into many philosophical debates current in Rome at that time. Again he offers an apologia for the antiquity and universal significance of the Jewish people.
