Finished proofing 44 Resurrections this weekendlike I said, this project sure moves swiftly!  Meanwhile, some of the couplets and tercets got remixed in John Bloomberg-Rissmans fabulous global project, In the House of the Hangman.  Look for us (were the lines beginning with I forgot) in No. 1705 over HERE

From this weekend, too: Happy Father's Day to all.  For himself, this is what we gave Dad -- which he asked for and is a testament to why it's impossible to choose presents for this Dude (featured with his catty Father's Day card):

Himself says earnestly, "Philo was very important ..." then left for Washington.  Still stuck on the dough, I looked him up and and, yeah, he was very important.  Click on this for more:
Philo used philosophical allegory to attempt to fuse and harmonize Greek philosophy with Jewish philosophy. His method followed the practices of both Jewish exegesis and Stoic philosophy. His allegorical exegesis was important for several Christian Church Fathers, but he has barely any reception history within Judaism. He believed that literal interpretations of the Hebrew Bible would stifle humanity's view and perception of a God too complex and marvelous to be understood in literal human terms. Some scholars hold that his concept of the Logos as God's creative principle influenced early Christology. Other scholars, however, deny direct influence but say both Philo and Early Christianity borrow from a common source.
