    More Information:

    Flavius Josephus (b. 37/8 A.D.), a Jewish priest and Pharisee, was put in command of the Jewish resistance in Galilee at the time of revolt against Rome, but was captured at Jotapata; his life was spared when he predicted that Vespasian would become emperor.  His works are an indispensable source on first century Jewish life and history.

    This is an Italian translation of Josephus' works
