H.B. Swete, editor of the shorter Cambridge Septuagint has provided in this Introduction a vast amount of information about the Greek translation of the Old Testament (also known as the LXX). Chapters cover the different versions and their manuscripts in detail, survey the contents and organization of the books and discuss their relationship to the Hebrew Bible, and demonstrate the importance of the LXX in later writings, such as the New Testament, the Church Fathers and other Christian writings. There are also extended discussions about the language of the Septuagint.
