A SEPTUAGINT INSTITUTE is soon to open at Trinity Western University in Vancouver. TWU is already well known for its Dead Sea Scrolls Institute, and their Professor Peter Flint was recently honored with a major chair and research grant.
New Hub for Septuagint Studies in North America

Newswise — The Septuagint, the earliest Greek translation of the Old Testament and the Bible of the early Christian church, was one of the key religious texts in the third century B.C.—and it’s soon to have a high profile in western Canada. On September 17, Vancouver’s Trinity Western University launches the Septuagint Institute, a hub for Septuagint research, translation, and publication projects.


Congratulations to TWU on yet another major contribution to the field.
