About the Author
Flavius Josephus (c. AD 37-100) was born to an aristocratic Jewish family, served as a priest, and later became the commander of Jewish forces in Galilee following the revolt against Rome that began AD 66. Captured by the Romans, Josephus spent his later life in Rome under the patronage of the Roman emperors where he composed his history of the Jewish people and his account of the Jewish war that led to the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in AD 70.
Henry St. John Thackeray (1869-1930) was Grinfield Lecturer on the Septuagint at Oxford University.
