In just under two months the triennial Congress of the International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies (IOSCS) will take place in Munich, Germany. As mentioned briefly in a previous post, this meeting takes place from 1-5 August, and is a sub-congress of the International Organization for the Study of the Old Testament (IOSOT). The schedule for the congress can be found here. I will be presenting a paper there on Friday, 2 August entitled “Lexical Possibilities in Septuagint Research: Revision and Expansion.” The subtitle is a reference to J.A.L. Lee’s introduction to his 1970 doctoral thesis, A Lexical Study of the Septuagint Version of the Pentateuch (SBLSCS 14, Atlanta, Ga.; Scholars Press, 1983), v, where he states that the work he completed is likely in need of “revision or expansion.” I am currently undertaking the research needed to check up on Lee’s conclusions, which is proving time-consuming but very fascinating. My Congress paper abstract can be viewed here, and other abstracts here.
