Overview

This volume contains thirty-eight studies devoted to the Septuagint written by an internationally recognized expert on that version and its relation to the Hebrew Bible. The author's experience on these topics is based on more than three decades of work within the Hebrew University Bible Project, the Computer Assisted Tools for Septuagint Studies project, and annual courses on the Septuagint given at the Hebrew University. These studies were originally published between 1971 and 1997.

All the studies included in this monograph have been revised, expanded, or shortened, in some cases considerably, and they integrate studies which appeared subsequent to the original monographs. All those interested in the Greek and Hebrew Bible and the study of translations, as well as classical philologists, orientalists, and theologians will benefit from this compendium of Emanuel Tov's research.

  • Essential discussions of the relationship between the Greek and Hebrew text
  • Thirty-eight valuable essays encompassing virtually all aspects of LXX research
  • General Studies
  • Lexicography
  • Translation Technique and Exegesis
  • The Septuagint and the Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible
  • The Septuagint and the Literary Criticism of the Hebrew Bible
  • Revisions of the Septuagint
Few if any living scholars have done more to investigate the place of the Greek versions in the textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible, and to have most of [Emanuel Tov's] studies collected together is a great service to scholarship.

[One] has to honour the breadth and quality of these articles, which demonstrate that their author is very well-versed in all the subjects in the field of Septuagint studies. . . .
