Jewish Philosopher

Philo of Alexandria was a Greek-speaking Jewish philosopher who attempted to synthesize faith and philosophical reason.

In his philosophy Philo was prepared to concede a good deal to Hellenism in his interpretation of the Bible. He was the first to distinguish between the knowability of God's existence and the unknowability of his essence.
