This volume, first published in 1999, 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, originally published between 1971 and 1997, deal with the following subjects: general topics, lexicography, translation technique and exegesis, the Septuagint and textual and literary criticism of the Hebrew Bible, and the revisions of the Septuagint.
All the studies included in this monograph have been revised, expanded, or shortened, in some cases considerably, and integrate studies that appeared subsequent to their original publication.
Emanuel Tov, Ph.D. (1973) in Biblical Studies, Hebrew University, has been the J. L. Magnes Professor of Bible at that university since 1990. He has published extensively on the textual criticism of the Greek and Hebrew Bible. Since 1990 he has served as the Editor in Chief of the International Qumran Publication Project.
