The ‘Septuagint’ is the primary Greek translation of the Old Testament, which according to tradition was commissioned by Ptolemy II for inclusion in the Library of Alexandria. Legend tells there were seventy-two translators, six from each of the twelve tribes of Israel, who worked independently to translate the original Hebrew text. The ‘Septuagint’ is a cornerstone of Western theology and remains an immensely popular choice of study for Christian scholars across the world.

The "Greek-German Dictionary of Writings from the New Testament and Early Christian Literature" is one of the standard works for New Testament scholars, researchers in patristics, and classical philologists. The 6th edition has been completely revised in all respects - in the NT text-base (both with respect to its comprehensiveness and the provision of variants) and in the Apostolic Fathers and the New Testament Apocrypha (these have been incorporated as comprehensively as possible for the first time). In addition, the Apologists and Early Church Fathers have been cited far more frequently than was previously the case. Numerous authors from the Christian, intertestamentary and classical fields have been referenced for the first time. Over 250 new articles have been included. The new typography speeds up searching and makes the structure of the articles more transparent. Thus, it waspossible to expand the material by about a third without increasing the number of pages.

English summary: At least since the humanist period Christian exegetes have always returned to the Greek version of the Septuagint Bible whenever the Hebrew version proved itself to be either challenging or even cryptic. Over the past 30 years, text-critical research of the bible has increasingly avoided this practice. Instead the text of the Septuagint is now viewed in its broad diversity and evolution as a witness to the textual history of the Old Testament deserving of separate examination. The articles by Eberhard Bons collected in this volume address this issue. Using selected examples, especially from the Psalms and the books of the prophets, it is shown that translators on the one hand tried to preserve the meaning of the Hebrew original, while on the other setting new priorities. German description: Spatestens seit der Zeit des Humanismus griffen christliche Bibelausleger immer wieder auf den griechischen Bibeltext der Septuaginta zuruck, wenn der hebraische sich als schwierig oder gar ratselhaft erwies. In den letzten 30 Jahren ist die textkritische Forschung am Bibeltext mehr und mehr von diesem Verfahren abgeruckt. Der Text der Septuaginta wird vielmehr in seiner ganzen Vielfalt und Entwicklung als ein Zeuge der Textgeschichte des Alten Testaments angesehen, der eine eigene Betrachtung verdient. Die im vorliegenden Band gesammelten Artikel von Eberhard Bons greifen diese Fragestellung auf. Anhand ausgewahlter Beispiele vor allem aus den Psalmen sowie den Prophetenbuchern wird herausgearbeitet, dass die Ubersetzer den Sinn ihrer hebraischen Ausgangstexte einerseits zu bewahren versuchten, andererseits aber auch neue inhaltliche Akzente setzten.

This posthumous edition of Dr Walters' The Text of the Septuagint provides a valuable working tool for specialists in Hellenistic and Classical Greek and the Old and New Testaments. The book is directed first to the practical task of producing a critical edition of the Septuagint, the Greek version of the Old Testament. Byzantine and Renaissance scholars both regarded the Greek Old Testament as belonging to the Church rather than to the heritage of classical literature which formed the proper object of their critical endeavours. It was therefore reproduced for centuries in much the same corrupt form and no complete critical edition was produced. The present work is a detailed study of the grammatical corruptions and semitisms in the LXX and is intended to stand as the prolegomenon to such an edition.

The Septuagint (the ancient Greek translation of Jewish sacred writings) is of great importance in the history of both Judaism and Christianity. The first translation of the books of the Hebrew Bible (plus additions) into the common language of the ancient Mediterranean world made the Jewish scriptures accessible to many outside Judaism. Not only did the Septuagint become Holy Writ to Greek speaking Jews but it was also the Bible of the early Christian communities: the scripture they cited and the textual foundation of the early Christian movement. Translated from Hebrew (and Aramaic) originals in the two centuries before Jesus, the Septuagint provides important information about the history of the text of the Bible. For centuries, scholars have looked to the Septuagint for information about the nature of the text and of how passages and specific words were understood. For students of the Bible, the New Testament in particular, the study of the Septuagint's influence is a vital part of the history of interpretation. But until now, the Septuagint has not been available to English readers in a modern and accurate translation. The New English Translation of the Septuagint fills this gap.

The Greek Septuagint is used as a justification for new-age bible versions, but closer examination shows it's not real.

Septuaginta: A Reader's Edition offers the complete text of the Greek Old Testament as it appears in the Rahlfs-Hanhart revised Septuaginta, laid out in a clear and readable format. All deuterocanonical books are included, as well as all double-texts, which are presented on facing pages for easy textual comparison. In order to facilitate natural and seamless reading of the text, every word occurring 100 times or fewer in the Rahlfs-Hanhart text (excluding proper names)--as well as every word that occurs more than 100 times in the Rahlfs-Hanhart text but fewer than 30 times in the Greek New Testament--is accompanied by a footnote that provides a contextual gloss for the word and (for verbs only) full parsing. Additionally, an appendix provides a complete alphabetized list of common vocabulary (namely, all the words that are not accompanied by a footnote), with glosses and (as applicable) comparison of a word's usage in the Septuagint to its usage in the New Testament. All of these combined features will make Septuaginta: A Reader's Edition an indispensable resource for biblical scholars and an excellent tool for improving one's comprehension of the Greek language. In addition to the attractive and high-quality binding, each volume will include two ribbon markers.
