Abstract

<p>Abstract:</p><p>This study considers the phrase "art of arts and science of sciences," and its variants, in antiquity. Often scholars who note the phrase in a particular ancient author&apos;s writing may make reference to another ancient author, but without considering the breadth or depth of its occurrences in antiquity. Beginning with the late sixth-century Gregory the Great&apos;s <i>Book of Pastoral Rule</i>, this article retraces the idea through history until reaching Philo of Alexandria. Philo&apos;s two uses of the phrase have been neglected in secondary scholarship, and yet his contributions foreshadow the semantic range that will subsequently be seen.</p>
