It’s always a big encouragement when people tell me they read this blog and have benefited from it in some way. That’s what I’m trying to do here. I also love hearing from readers by email. However, many of the emails I receive have to do with the same handful of topics. So before you get in touch, browse through the FAQ list below to see if I have addressed your question elsewhere already.
Frequently Asked Questions
My school doesn’t offer a course in Septuagint studies. What is the best way to get oriented to the field on my own?
You are not alone in this. Very few institutions offer a course in Septuagint studies, primarily because there are so few scholars out there who were trained in the field, and even fewer who feel it’s worth offering a course on. My recommendation is to check out this page for a general introduction and recommended reading.
Where can I go to do a master’s or doctoral degree in Septuagint studies?
Good question. I was getting this so often that I devoted a series of posts to answering it as exhaustively as possible. All the same information is now available on a dedicated page, which is organized geographically.
Who are some prominent scholars in the field?
I have been slowly working my way through publishing interviews with significant scholars working in Septuagint studies. These are now organized on a dedicated page, which will be updated as they accumulate. Of course, there are many more scholars who I have not yet interviewed!

N.B. I do my best to respond to as many inquiries as possible. But not all of them. This blog is not my full time job and I have to use discretion in how much time I invest. Thanks for understanding.
