Abstract:There are promising signs that studies of the Septuagint are experiencing a timely proliferation. The Old Greek of the Pentateuch has been prepared in the Gottingen series by J. W. Wevers and a number of other LXX books are being processed. Many research projects are in progress or are being devised (inter alia, the NETS project). In addition, prominent Septuagint scholars are productively at work. Reviews a recent collection of articles aimed at correct methodology. (c) Religious and Theological Abstracts

Title:Greek Philosophy and the Septuagint
Pages:177-91
Journal:Journal of Northwest Semitic Languages
Volume:24
Issue:1
Abstract:Views regarding the extent to which Greek philosophy influenced the Septuagint vary widely. Ancient authors such as Philo Judaeus and Clement from Alexandria held Platonically oriented viewpoints on creation. Plato also had an impact on more modern opinions. Contemporary scholars such as Gerleman, Hengel, Sandelin, etc. also found indications of Greek philosophical thought in specific passages of the LXX. There is no ground for such assumptions. Even though the translators of the Septuagint ably made use of the Greek language in the books of Genesis and especially Proverbs, this does not mean that they utilized the Hellenistic world of ideas.

Title:The Hexaplaric Text, Double Translation and Other Textual Phenomena in the Septuagint (Proverbs)
Pages:129-40
Journal:Journal of Northwest Semitic Languages
Volume:22
Issue:2
Abstract:There are numerous examples of textual phenomena in LXX Proverbs that occur in the rest of the Septuagint too. Scholars use terminology such as the hexaploric text, double translations, doublets and double readings to describe these phenomena. Unfortunately they are not consistent in their descriptions, in many instances using them interchangeably. One should distinguish between the different categories. The term double translations should be applied solely with reference to a translator who endeavors to elucidate a problematic Hebrew/Aramaic reading that appears in his Vorlage. Doublet should be used in connection with the transmission history of the LXX. Finally the term Hexaplaric text should be used only to describe readings which refer to Origen and his circle. There is also a difference between this text and the hebraising adaptation which took place earlier. (c) Religious and Theological Abstracts

Title:The Law in the Septuagint Proverbs
Pages:211-23
Journal:Journal of Northwest Semitic Languages
Volume:23
Issue:1
Abstract:A number of scholar hold the view that the Septuagint version of Proverbs is essentially a Hellenistic document (Gerleman, Hengel, etc.). One of their main arguments is that the law as a sign of Jewish religious piety has at best a limited role to play in this book. The contrary is actually true. There is a significant relationship between the law, the fear of God, the covenant and wisdom. The law is more prominent than previously thought, partly because the book is not a Hellenistic document but rather a Jewish-Hellenistic document. (c) Religious and Theological Abstracts
