Song of the Three/Dan 3
- Is anyone familiar with any scholarly works/discussion
on the origin, textual/literary/theological issues,
etc. for the so-called "Song of the Three"
(Brenton),or the LX/Th versions of Dan. 3:51-90?

- James, I think in this case, the translators' note was not adhering to the
technical definition of "family." The various versions of Tobit fall into
essentially two large groups, representing two literary versions of Tobit:
that of Sinaiticus representing the longer OL/NRSV text, and that of
Vaticanus and Alexandrinus representing the shorter Vulgate/RSV text. I
suppose "Sinaiticus family" is, though technically incorrect, colloquially
understood to reflect just that distinction.
