The Septuagint is a Jewish Bible translation which came into existence in the 3rd century BC and became Judaism's basis in the Greek-speaking world. From a historical textual perspective, it is the most important source for the Old Testament besides the Hebrew-Masoretic text and the only very partially preserved biblical Qumran texts. This volume's contributions cover a wide spectrum of this discipline's themes – Septuagint Studies is a separate field lying at the interface of ancient Judaism and the historical-exegetic orientated theological disciplines – and arose from the Septuagint Deutsch Project's 5th International Conference.
