Hegesippi qui dicitur Historiae libri V, recensuit et praefatione, commentario critico, indicibus instruxit Vincentius Ussani. Pars prior: textum criticum continens, Vindobonae 1932 (Corpus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum, 66/1).
Under the name of Hegesippus has been preserved a Latin edition of the Bellum Iudaicum of Flavius Josephus. The arc of time covered goes from the beginnings of the Jewish monarchy (from the enterprises of the Maccabees in the 2nd c. BC to the Hasmonean dynasty, culminating in the events relating to Herod) to the conclusion of the First Jewish War (AD 66-70), with the seizure of Jerusalem by Titus. The work is subdivided into five books, of which the first four correspond to the respective four in the original Greek, while the fifth encompasses the contents of Books 5-7. As this fact already demonstrates, the translation diverges remarkably from its model, sometimes amplifying and sometimes reducing its contents. Authorial interventions in the epitome cluster especially around the insertion of discourses. Although remaining in a constant relationship of aemulatio with Flavius Josephus, Hegesippus distances himself from an ideological point of view, explicitly criticizing in his prologue the non-Christian approach of the historical work: relator egregius historico stilo Iosephus, utinam tam religione et veritate attentus quam rerum indagini et sermonum sobrietati. The editio princeps of the work was published at Paris in 1510. (E. Della Calce – S. Mollea; tr. C. L. Caterine].
