Philo, known also as Philo of Alexandria, Philo Judaeus, and Philo the Jew, among other names, was a Hellenistic Jewish philosopher who lived in Alexandria from 20 BC to 50 CE. Philo's works are most known for being allegorical interpretations of the Scriptures, fusing Jewish thought to Stoic philosophy. Although not widely accepted in his time, his vast collection of works had a powerful influence on early Christian theology and especially on later Christian writers like Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Saint Jerome and Athenagorus. Despite being a devout Jew, some saw in Philo a cryptic Christian. This is the first of four volumes of "The Works of Philo," and contains many of his cosmogenic and historical works addressing various topics in Genesis like "On the Creation of the World," "On the Allegories of the Sacred Laws," "Of Cain and His Birth," and "On the Unchangeableness of God."
