    Religion and Identity in Porphyry of Tyre: The Limits of Hellenism in Late Antiquity.Aaron P. Johnson - 2013 - Cambridge University Press.
    Porphyry, a native of Phoenicia educated in Athens and Rome during the third century AD, was one of the most important Platonic philosophers of his age. In this book, Professor Johnson rejects the prevailing modern approach to his thought, which has posited an early stage dominated by 'Oriental' superstition and irrationality followed by a second rationalizing or Hellenizing phase consequent upon his move west and exposure to Neoplatonism. Based on a careful treatment of all the relevant remains of Porphyry's originally (...)

    Ethnicity and Argument in Eusebius' Praeparatio Evangelica.Aaron P. Johnson - 2006 - Oxford University Press.
    Eusebius' magisterial Praeparatio Evangelica offers a defence of Christianity in the face of Greek accusations of irrationality and impiety. Aaron P. Johnson seeks to appreciate Eusebius' contribution to the discourses of Christian identity by investigating the constructions of ethnic identity at the heart of his work.

    Philosophy, Hellenicity, Law: Porphyry on Origen, Again.Aaron P. Johnson - 2012 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 132:55-69.
    Porphyry's criticism of Origen (in c.Christ. fr. 39 Harnack) is usually interpreted as expressive of the accusation: Christians had not only abandoned their pagan religious traditions () but also their new religious host, Judaism, whose texts they misappropriated for themselves. Reading key elements of the fragment within Porphyry's broader philosophical thought prompts suspicion of this cultural interpretation of the fragment, and instead points to a serious Platonic reaction to Christianity.

    A New Porphyry Fragment?Gad Freudenthal & Aaron P. Johnson - 2020 - Classical Quarterly 70 (1):410-428.
    The days, not so far back, in which Arabic philosophical works were skimmed essentially with a view of ‘uncovering’ lost gems of Greek philosophy are fortunately behind us. Today these works are studied on their own, as essential building blocks of the history of philosophy. None the less, medieval philosophic works in Arabic continue to allow significant new discoveries concerning the history of Greek philosophy. The same holds, naturally enough, of medieval Hebrew works written by Jewish scholars who lived under (...)
