Zusammenfassung

In most of his works Philo interprets what he calls a Law, and in some others he acts as an advocate. Was he a lawyer in any sense? This article reviews and confirms the negative answer once given by Rabbi Isaak Heinemann, the translator of De specialibus legibus into German, who also commented on it abundantly in 1932. The result is: Philo’s writings teach us more about Plato’s notions than about social reality in Jewish Alexandria. He is an apologist for a given tradition and for Jewish particularities, which should not be regarded as such, close as they are – so it seems to him – to Plato’s Laws.
