O’Connell, Séamus

Series Information
Orbis Biblicus et Orientalis, 215

Description: Nicht nur ihren Redakteuren, sondern auch der Kultur und Zeit, in der sie entstand, war die Complutenser Polyglotte ein Monument. Séamus O’Connells Studie erlaubt einen fokussierten Blick auf die spanische Wissenschaft und intellektuelle Kultur der Frühmoderne, da sie zeigt, wie die Hellenisten von Alcalá ihre Manuskripte redigierten und zusammenstellten. Indem der Autor den griechischen Text des Alten Testaments der Complutenser Polyglotte in den geschichtlichen Rahmen der griechischen Texteditionen des Alten Testaments stellt, schlägt er eine neue Forschungsrichtung ein, die wertvolle Impulse für weitere Forschung auf diesem Gebiet gibt.

Subjects: Bible, Septuagint, Literature
