Vorstellungen von der Gegenwart Gottes bei Philo von Alexandrien

Translated title of the contribution: Concepts of the presence of God in Philo of Alexandria

Jutta Leonhardt-Balzer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


For Philo, the logos concept is one of the most important tools to express God's presence on earth. To see God is impossible on the human part, but the Logos bridges the gap from God's side. Jewish motifs, e.g. the high priest, pilgrimage, the Temple are used as metaphors of God's presence and translated into Hellenistic philosophy.
