This volume continues a well-established tradition of presenting the proceedings of the triennial Congress of the International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies (IOSCS) in published form. In method and content, the seventeen papers published here represent the current state of Septuagint studies, ranging in their approach from the conceptual to the specific and in their subject matter from specific Septuagint texts to issues translation past and present.
