The Life of Flavius Josephus


The Life of Flavius Josephus

"The Life of Josephus" ("Iosepou bios"), also called the "Life of Flavius Josephus", is an autobiographical text written by Josephus in approximately 94-99 CE – possibly as an appendix to his "Antiquities of the Jews" (cf. "Life" 430) – where the author for the most part re-visits the events of the War, apparently in response to allegations made against him by Justus of Tiberias (cf. "Life" 336).
