Abstract

Philo's apparent divinization of Moses is considered vis-à-vis ancient conceptions of gender. Philo's Moses is a perfect illustration of the ideology of masculinity evident in a wide range of Greco-Roman literature. Moreover, with Philo's Moses, perfect masculinity is commensurate with divinity, but both remain relative to the "asexual masculinity" of God.
