Description: The Septuagint is a translation of Hebrew Scriptures into Greek originated in Egypt in the time of the Ptolemaic kings. It became the basis for the Jewish religion in the Mediterranean world in antiquity and also for the dissemination of Christianity. It was used by New Testament authors for their scripture quotations and it became the canonical form of the Old Testament in the Orthodox Church. It is also a mirror of its historical setting and a witness of religio-historical influences as well as of theological concepts and perceptions. It is the most important witness for the textual history of the Old Testament, apart from the Hebrew Masoretic text, because unlike the Qumran biblical texts it is complete. This volume contains studies into the origins, the language and the history, including the Wirkungsgeschichte . The papers were presented at an international conference in Wuppertal, Germany, in July 2010, organized by the Septuaginta Deutsch project.
