This chapter draws several conclusions based on the detailed analysis of Greek authors and their personal accounts of the Jews that were presented in the previous chapters, addressing the question of the basic attitudes of the Greek authors towards the Jews and attempting to define the components of Jewish identity. It also stresses that it is important to be very careful before considering Greek authors as “Judaeophiles” or “anti-Semitic.”
