Baruch and the Epistle of Jeremiah: A Commentary Based on the Texts in Codex Vaticanus (Septuagint Commentaries)

Sean A Adams


This paintings is the 1st significant remark of LXX "Baruch and the Epistle of Jeremiah" in English. instead of seeing LXX almost always as a text-critical source or as a window on a now-lost Hebrew textual content, this remark, as a part of the Septuagint statement sequence, translates Baruch and EpJer as Greek texts and from the point of view of Greek readers strange with Hebrew. integrated are a transcription and an English translation of Codex Vaticanus, the oldest extant manuscript of the books, and an in depth remark. one other significant contribution is the utilisation of the sense-delimitation (paragraphs) of Codex Vaticanus and different codices to discover how early readers interpreted the textual content.
