9783161517334: Collected Studies on the Septuagint: From Language to Interpretation and Beyond (Forschungen Zum Alten Testament)

In this volume Jan Joosten brings together seventeen articles, published in journals and collective volumes between 1996 and 2008, with one unpublished essay. In these essays he deals mainly with questions of language and interpretation in the earliest Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible. Many of Jan Joosten's studies take their point of departure in one or the other striking features in the language of the Septuagint, propose a theory explaining its peculiarity, and go on from there to relate the linguistic phenomenon to wider historical, exegetical or theological issues. Others deal with problems of method in establishing the historical background of the version, its relation to the Hebrew source text, and its theology. Taken as a whole, Jan Joosten offers an original contribution to a number of contemporary debates on the Old Greek version. Notably in this book he addresses from various perspectives the questions of who the translators were and what they tried to do.

About the Author:

Jan Joosten, Born 1959; 1989 PhD from Hebrew University, Jerusalem; since 1994 Professor at the Faculty of Protestant Theology of the University of Strasbourg, also directs the Groupe de Recherches sur la Septante; since 2012 President of the International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies.

Review:

"The articles are clean, with very few typos, and the prose is clear and easy to read...it no doubt will be beneficial for Septuagint scholars to have easier access to [Joosten's]studies." --Sean A. Adams, Review of Biblical Literature (August 2013)
