The Old Testament in Greek According to the Septuagint (Apparatus for Alternate Texts)

by

Cambridge University Press 1909

Overview

Henry Barclay Swete’s Old Testament in Greek According to the Septuagint is an authoritative edition of the Greek text of the Old Testament. Work first began in 1875 at the initiative of F. H. A. Scrivener, and continued under the editorship and direction of Swete. The first volume appeared in print in 1887, and subsequent volumes were published during the following two decades. Swete’s Septuagint uses the Codex Vaticanus as its base texts, and also uses other important manuscripts, including the Alexandrine MS, Codex Sinaiticus, Codex Cottonianus, Codex Ambrosianus, and other texts. For years after its initial publication, Swete’s Septuagint remained the standard edition in print, and has been widely used by students and scholars of the Septuagint.
