It’s wonderful to see yet another opportunity this year to study the Septuagint at the summer school hosted by Trinity Western University in Langley, BC, and made possible by the John William Wevers Institute for Septuagint Studies. (more…)

Good news for those looking for some extra training in the area of Septuagint research. The 2019 Septuagint Summer School is now official at Trinity Western University, organized through the John William Wevers Institute for Septuagint Studies.
I have posted in the past about how difficult it can be to find direct instruction in this field (e.g., here), and this is one of the few recurring opportunities to do just that. If this opportunity sounds slightly familiar, that’s because this is the fifth or sixth time the TWU Summer Course has been offered. You can check out my posts on the 2018, 2017, 2016, and 2015 courses.
This year’s course will be held from June 24th-28th at 8:30am to 12:30pm (PDT), but for those who cannot make it to the Pacific Northwest there is also a live-stream option. It is designed as a three-credit course at the graduate level. (more…)
