The Peshitta of Daniel sets forth an analysis of the Syriac text of the Book of Daniel. It discusses the relationship of the Peshitta text of Daniel to the Hebrew/Aramaic text of this portion of Scripture, and its relationship to the Old Greek and Theodotionic versions as well. Making use of the Leiden edition of the Syriac text, it seeks to evaluate the text-critical value of the Peshitta of Daniel and describes various translation techniques employed in the Peshitta of Daniel and evaluates its qualities as a translation.
This volume will be of particular interest to Syricists, specialists in the Syriac Bible (or other early versions of the Bible), students of the Book of Daniel, and Old Testament textual critics.
