However, James Rendel Harris (1852 1941), a biblical scholar, palaeographer and Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge, thought Philo too slenderly prized in Britain.

Harris intended this collection, published in 1886, to bring together surviving fragments of Philos work. In a detailed introduction, he explains the complicated tasks involved in identifying and classifying these ancient texts, and also points out that this volume is intended to provide a basis for future research on Philo.

The fragments are presented in their original Greek, most of them accompanied by a Latin translation. Harris provides notes throughout, and the book continues to offer a valuable resource for biblical and philosophical scholarship.
