Sad News- Louis Feldman has Died

From the H-Judaic list-

H-Judaic is deeply saddened to learn [from Dr Edward Reichman and Menachem Butler] of the passing of Professor Louis Feldman (1926-2017), the Abraham Wouk Family Professor of Classics and Literature at Yeshiva University, where Prof. Feldman taught for some 60 years. Prof. Feldman was recognized around the world as the “Dean” of Josephus scholars and contributed greatly to our understanding of Jewish life during the Hellenistic era. He published numerous books (see below) and hundreds of articles –243 are listed in RAMBI. He was a “scholar’s scholar” — a model of dedication to craft coupled with modesty and wide-ranging learning.
