      Publication Description

      This volume, which includes papers delivered at an international conference sponsored by the Septuagint Institute of Trinity Western University, addresses such topics as the nature and function of the Septuagint, its reception history, and the issues involved in translating it into other languages. . . . It also reflects the kind of discourse currently taking place in the field of Septuagint research, celebrates the appearance of three modern-language translations of the Septuagint, and sets the stage for . . . the hermeneutical/interpretative task associated with the production of commentaries.
