TITUS FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS (37 - ca. 100 CE) was a first-century Jewish-Roman historian and
hagiographer, who was born in Jerusalem (then part of Roman Judea) to a father of
priestly descent and a mother who claimed royal ancestry. He initially fought against
the Romans during the First Jewish-Roman War as head of Jewish forces in Galilee, until
surrendering in 67 to Roman forces led by Vespasian. After Vespasian became Emperor in
69, he granted Josephus his freedom, at which time Josephus assumed the emperor's family
name of Flavius and was granted Roman citizenship. He became an advisor and friend of
Vespasian's son Titus, serving as his translator when Titus led the Siege of Jerusalem,
which resulted -- when the Jewish revolt did not surrender -- in the city's destruction
and the looting and destruction of Herod's Temple (Second Temple).
Josephus is without a doubt the most important witness to ancient Judaism from the close
of the biblical period to the aftermath of the destruction of the temple in 70 CE. His
surviving works provide the narrative structure for interpreting the other, more
fragmentary written sources and physical remains for this period. His descriptions of
the Temple, the Judean countryside, Jewish-Roman relations and conflicts, and groups and
institutions of ancient Judea have become indispensable for the student of early Judaism,
of Classics, and of Christian origins alike.
His most important work is THE JEWISH WAR, a description of Jewish history from the
capture of Jerusalem by the Seleucid ruler Antiochus IV Epiphanes in 164 BCE to the fall
and destruction of Jerusalem in 70 CE. The book was written ca. 75 CE, originally in
Josephus's "paternal tongue", probably Aramaic, though this version has not survived, and
was later translated into Greek, probably under the supervision of Josephus himself.
AGAINST APION is a two-volume defence of Judaism as classical religion and philosophy,
stressing its antiquity, as opposed to what Josephus claimed was the relatively more
recent tradition of the Greeks. Some anti-Judaic allegations ascribed by Josephus to the
Greek writer Apion, and myths accredited to Manetho are also addressed.
THE LIFE OF JOSEPHUS is an autobiographical text written ca. 94-99 CE in which the author
for the most part re-visits the events of the War, apparently in response to allegations
made against him by Justus of Tiberias.
