Item description for Introduction to the Old Testament in Greek, with an appendix containing the Letter of Aristeas, edited by H. St. J. Thackeray by Henry Barclay Swete...

Henry Barclay Swete (1835-1917) published An Introduction to the Old Testament in Greek in 1900 as a manual to accompany his three-volume edition of the Septuagint (1887-1894) and to provide a guide through the vast corpus of Septuagint literature. Part 1 covers the textual history of the Septuagint, providing an in-depth analysis of its complex tradition, surveying the most important Greek witnesses and the earliest versions. Part 2 discusses the Alexandrian manuscript tradition, and covers the order and grouping of books, titles, comparison with the Hebrew Canon, and the textual divisions used in the manuscripts. Part 3 is concerned with the influence and use of the Septuagint in later works. An appendix contains the letter of pseudo-Aristeas with an introduction explaining the forgery. For over a century Swete's work has been an indispensable tool for every scholar and student of the Septuagint.


Book Description
Henry Barclay Swete's Introduction to the Old Testament in Greek, first published in 1900, is an indispensable tool for the study of the Septuagint.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to the Old Testament in Greek, with an appendix containing the Letter of Aristeas, edited by H. St. J. Thackeray?

A Concise Review of Available Data  Apr 5, 2000
I found "Introduction to the Old Testament in Greek" to be a book that contains a wealth of knowledge in regard to manuscript evidence. It is not the quintessential easy reader, but it is great for reference. It provides a very detailed description of almost all of the manuscripts used to establish the Septuagint and those used by current scholarship to translate Old Testament texts.
