Group Description

From the 3d c. BCE onwards the Hebrew scriptures were translated into Greek, and collected and edited. The era begins with the early translation of the Torah into Greek under a third century Ptolemy, continues with the ensuing translation and composition of other biblical books in Greek, and the rise of new translations and redactions after the split between Christianity and Judaism. The resultant families of texts, discernable in the 4th c. CE (if not before) and associated with the ptolemaic stories, are known as the Septuagint. Modern research has sought to critically reconstruct earlier Greek versions of the Hebrew Scriptures often called the Old Greek.

To contribute to further understanding of the Septuagint and Old Greek versions of the Hebrew Scriptures, this discussion list is dedicated to facilitate exchange between theologians, Biblical scholars, philologists, and students of Septuagintal studies. For detailed information, please see the group's homepage.
