This completely revised and expanded third edition of Emauel Tov's The Text-Critical Use of the Septuagint in Biblical Research provides a practical guide for the student and scholar alike who wishes to use the Septuagint (LXX) in the text-critical analysis of the Hebrew Bible. The LXX, together with the Masoretic Text and several Qumran scrolls, remains the most significant source of information for the study of ancient Scripture, but it is written in Greek, and many technical details need to be taken into consideration when using this tool. Therefore, a practical handbook such as this is needed for the integration of the Greek translation in the study of the Hebrew Bible.
Emerging after half a century of study of the Septuagint, four decades of specialized teaching experience, and extensive involvement in research projects focusing on the relationship between the Hebrew and Greek Bibles, Tov's The Text-Critical Use of the Septuagint in Biblical Research is based on much background information, intuition and experience, clear thinking, and a solid description of the procedures followed. Rather than offering another theoretical introduction to the LXX, this handbook provides all the practical background information needed for the integration of the LXX in biblical studies. It is a must have for students of the Hebrew Bible, textual criticism, the Septuagint and the other ancient translations, Dead Sea Scrolls, and Jewish Hellenism.
This third edition presents a completely revised version of the previous editions based on the many developments that have taken place in the analysis of the Septuagint, the Hebrew Bible, and the Qumran Scrolls. Much new information has also been added.
