The Septuagint represents the oldest translation of the Hebrew Bible into Greek. The essays in this volume locate the translation of the Septuagint within the context of the translation of other religious texts of antiquity, and address specific aspects of the translation in the individual writings and in relation to central concepts. The Septuagint had fundamental significance for emerging Christianity and its literature. The manner in which the Septuagint was appropriated in the New Testament documents is variously developed in the series of essays. Finally the volume broadens its view beyond the New Testament literature to include the Patristic period.
