The Septuagint is the third Jewish translation of the Bible from the Century BC arose. It became the central basis of Judaism in the Greco-Hellenistic world and subsequently for the spread of Christianity. It was used by most New Testament authors as the basis of their written quotes and the Old Testament in the Orthodox churches. It offers insights into the understanding of the Scriptures and the theology of the Greek-speaking Jews in the ancient world. Text in historical terms, it is the most important source in addition to the Hebrew Masoretic text, especially as it is different from the biblical texts from Qumran, handed down completely. The Septuagint research forms a separate area adjacent to the study of the Hebrew Bible, and is located at the intersection with the New Testament and ancient history and religious history. This volume contains studies on the origin, language, history, and of the influence of the Septuagint. He gives an overview of the current state of research and shows perspectives for further research. The band grew out of an international conference of the German project Septuagint, which was held in July 2010 in Wuppertal.
