Flavius Josephus (c. 37–100 CE) was a historian who wrote the Antiquities, a history of the Jews up to Roman times, and the Jewish War, describing the Jewish rebellion against the Romans in 66–73 CE, as well as the Against Apion.

While Josephus originally wrote these works in Greek, they were extremely popular and influential during late antiquity and the Middle Ages in Latin translations. James J. O’Donnell suggested that the Antiquities was ‘the single most often copied historical work of the Middle Ages’.

This site offers a transcription of the Latin versions of Flavius Josephus’ two largest works, the Jewish War and the Antiquities. The Latin has been made to align with the Greek text (from Niese), which is then aligned with the English translation produced by Whiston in 1737.
