What Will the Glossary Look Like?

More information on the forthcoming Reader’s Edition.

Septuaginta: A Reader's Edition

As mentioned in our overview of the page-by-page vocabulary apparatus for this project, we have provided roughly 125,000 footnotes containing contextual glosses throughout our two volumes, representing words that occur under 100x in the LXX or under 30x in the Greek NT.

But what about the rest of the words?

Those higher-frequency words (some of which occur thousands of times) are usually quite familiar to Greek readers, and so would simply clutter the page if we put them in the footnotes. Thus, we have consolidated them in a glossary included at the back.

In this post, we will give you a brief overview of this glossary.
