Overview

Richard R. Ottley provides a thorough history of the Septuagint. Chapters cover the different versions and their manuscripts, survey the contents and organization of the books, discuss their relationship to the Hebrew Bible, and demonstrate the importance of the LXX in later writings. Ottley also explores the language and style of the Septuagint, and more.

With the Logos edition, all Scripture passages are tagged and appear on mouse-over. What’s more, Scripture references link to a wealth of language resources in your digital library. This makes the texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “Alexandria,” or “kingdom.”
