Item description for The Peshitta of Leviticus (Monographs of the Peshitta Institute Leiden, Vol 6) by David J. Lane...
The Peshitta of Leviticus deals with the Syriac (Peshitta) text of Leviticus, discussing presuppositions of the manuscripts' scribes as well as the intentions of the translator. Its starting point is the critical edition of the Leiden Peshitta (E.J. Brill, Leiden, 1991). The first part of the book examines the variant readings of the manuscripts, assessing their use in the Leiden Peshitta, and evaluating their interpretative significance. The second part considers causes of resemblance and difference in Peshitta, Targum, and LXX interpretation, ending with comments on other printed Leviticus editions, and the origins of the version. This volume is of particular interest as a study of translation, and the relating of a text to its church origin and context.
