1573Question from a new member...
- May 12, 2005Hello, my name is Jim Rovira. I'm a Ph.D. candidate in English at
Drew Unviersity in Madison, NJ, and a Lecturer in English at Rollins
College in Winter Park, FL. I've been studying Christian theology and
texts independently (off and on) for about 23 years, and have very,
very modest instruction in NT Greek.
A question came up on a Milton listserv I'm subscribed to that I found
difficult to answer, and I was hoping listmembers here could help out.
I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but would like to hear the
opinions of scholars in the field.
When LXX translators translated Hebrew poetry into Greek, did they
incorporate line breaks, or simply write the text across the page? I
suspect earliest and most texts were simply written across the page,
but if this isn't the case, I'd like to know, and if there are
significant variants, I'm curious about those too.
