Intro to LXX

All honor to the Hebrew original! But the proverbial Novum in Vetere latet cannot be fully understood without a knowledge of the Septuagint.” A. Deissmann

Under Construction… my plan for this page is to provide my own overview of the field of LXX studies, why it is wonderful, why it matters for Old Testament and, more broadly, Biblical Studies as a whole, and how to go about learning more.

I also have a growing list of helpful LXX Resources for the “uninitiated,” as it can be difficult to navigate this insider-type field. Many of my posts are about LXX topics, so see my LXX Category for starters.
