Description: Published in German. As the central biblical reference text for ancient Greek-speaking Judaism and Christianity alike, the Septuagint both aids and challenges expressions of Jewish and Christian identity. The diversity of its current debates are reflected in this volume, which brings aspects of textual criticism, textual history, philology, theology, reception history, and Jewish identity in the Second Temple period together to provide an up-to-date overview of the latest in international research. Contributors include Felix Albrecht, Anna Angelini, Hans Ausloos, Elena Belenkaja, Antonella Bellatuno, Eberhard Bons, Cameron Boyd-Taylor, Alma Brodersen, Ralph Brucker, Brun Bureau, José Manuel Cañas Reíllo, Johann Cook, Kristin de Troyer, Marieke Dhont, Christian Eberhart, Johanna Erzberger, Stefan Freund, Bonifatia Gesche, Michaela Geiger, Innocent Himbaza, Jan Joosten, Maria Jurovitskaja, Martin Karrer, Wolfgang Kraus, Siegfried Kreuzer, Christoph Kugelmeier, Theo A.
