140 Review of Books / Journal for the Study of Judaism 41 (2010) 94-151 Über die Ursprünglichkeit des Judentums: Contra Apionem. By Flavius Josephus, edited by Folker Siegert. (Schriften des Institutum Judaicum Delitzschianum 6). Göttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 2008. 2 volumes. Pp. 218; 211. Hard- back. €139.00. ISBN 978-3-525-54206-4. Study of Contra Apionem has been booming in recent years. After a decade brack- eted by a collection of articles on this work edited by Feldman and Levison in 1996 and another authored by Haaland in 2006, and punctuated by Kasher’s 1996 Hebrew translation of the work, Gerber’s 1997 monograph on the por- trayal of Jewish law in C. Ap. 2, the 1999 Aarhus Josephus-Colloquium, and Labow’s 2005 monograph on C. Ap . 1, this boom peaked in 2007 with the appearance of Barclay’s massive translation of and commentary upon the entire work. Barclay, fortunately, had pre-publication access to this Münster team’s work, and now the publication of the latter has put the study of this apologetic work onto a completely new and more dependable basis. These two volumes, which take their place alongside the same Arbeitskreis ’ 2001 edition of Josephus’ Vita , are a treasure for students
