Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible, Qumran, Septuagint: Collected Essays, Volume 3
Leiden: Brill, 2015 pp. xxiv + 540. Ä168.00
Vetus Testamentum, Supplements, 167
Description: Thirty-three revised and updated essays on the textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible, Qumran and the Septuagint, originally published between 2008 and 2014 are presented in this volume, the third volume of the authorís collected writings. All three areas have developed much in modern research, and the auhor, the past editor-in-chief of the international Dead Sea Scrolls publication project, is a major speaker in all of them. The scrolls are of central importance in the modern textual research and this aspect is well represented in this volume. Among the studies included in this volume are central studies on coincidence, consistency, the Torah, the nature of the MT and SP, the diffusion of manuscripts, and the LXX of Genesis.
