Philo

Philo Judaeus (20 BC - 50 AD) was a Jewish philosopher from Alexandria. His writings have had an enormous influence on both Jewish and Christian thought, and directly impacted the writings of near contemporaries Clement and Origen.

Philo was among the first to merge biblical religion and Greek philosophy. Only fragments of Philo's religious doctrines survive, but many traces of it can be found quoted in later authors.
