Flavius Josèphe et la reine veuve : à la recherche d’un modèle judéo-hellénistique de légitimité successorale ?

Abstract : Within his Jewish Antiquities, Josephus composed the 13th book in a strict order and symmetry and attempted to evolve a succession pattern which would be able to overcome the difficulties, if not the chaos, due to the royal Hellenistic successions; in his proposed pattern, the royal widow (either Jew or Seleucid) has a crucial part. Describing an institutional model where women have a part, Josephus is radically opposed to an occidental, anti-oriental and anti-feminist tradition conveyed by Diodorus Siculus and Justin (Pompeius Trogus’abbreviator).
