It’s been pretty quiet on this blog for almost two months now. Part of the reason for that is the fact that I am now entering what is hopefully my last six months of dissertation writing. Things are getting serious so it’s taking more of my time and focus.
I’ll also say that I have not one, but two pretty big announcements to make, one Septuagint-related and one personal. I can’t really say anything more at this point. But suffice it to say that these two items have demanded a lot of my time and attention over the last two months as well. More coming soon. (more…)
This summer there is a great opportunity to learn more about the Septuagint with a leading scholar in the discipline at the University of Salzburg. Now for the second year in a row, Dr. Kristin De Troyer is offering a week-long summer school dealing with textual criticism and history.
As I have said before, if you are a graduate student considering further study in Septuagint, you should consider being supervised by De Troyer in the beautiful city of Salzburg. (more…)
I have not done a book review on the blog for a while. But a great opportunity came along for a great resource, so here we are.
Just about a month ago Hendrickson Publishers released a new series of volumes produced by Jonathan Kline entitled Keep Up Your Biblical Languages in Two Minutes a Day. You are probably familiar with this publisher even if it’s not a name you immediately recognize. They are perhaps best known for their primary texts, which they produce in cooperation with Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft. For example, they recently produced two high-quality reader’s editions for the OT and NT. They’ve also just printed a very nicely-bound The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible, which pairs Leningrad with Westcott-Hort for OT and NT texts.
But now, for the books of interest for this post. (more…)
