J.E. Glas, MA
Eelco Glas' research concentrates on Graeco-Jewish literature in the Roman world, particularly the works of Flavius Josephus. His doctoral dissertation investigates the problem of Flavius Josephus’ dual role as author and character in the Bellum Judaicum. It offers the first systematic literary analysis of this aspect of Josephus' work, asking how Josephus' presentation of his character be explained in the context of the Bellum as a whole, as a history written in Greek and addressing a local audience in first century Rome.
Glas is currently designing a new project called "Philo: A Jewish Migrant Between Alexandria and Rome." This project seeks to explain the relationship between Philo’s biographical treatises (The Life of Moses, On Abraham, On Joseph) and the intellectual trends in and around first-century Rome.
