Aspects of the Reception of Flavius Josephus in the Middle Ages: The Greek-Speaking East and the Lat  (Public Programs)

Aspects of the Reception of Flavius Josephus in the Middle Ages: The Greek-Speaking East and the Latin-Speaking West

No Jewish works, except the biblical texts, were used by Christians on such a large scale as the Judean Antiquities and Judean War of the Jewish-Roman historian Flavius Josephus (37-100 CE). His works became central to the construction of Christian thought and identity across the Greek-speaking East and the Latin-speaking West in the Middle Ages. Dr. Kampianaki will explore the reasons why and the ways through which a notable Jewish author, such as Josephus, entered the Christian sphere, while his Jewish origins were still being acknowledged.


Theofili Kampianaki is a Research Fellow at the School of History and Cultures in the University of Birmingham in the UK. She holds a Master's and a Doctorate in Medieval Greek and Latin Languages from the University of Oxford.
