LXX Bibliography (2012-)

[WORK IN PROGRESS]

There is a tradition within Septuagint scholarship of maintaining a bibliography of works in the discipline. This process began with the yeoman’s work of the scholars who helped launch the IOSCS, and it has been picked up in various intervals by various scholars ever since. Here’s the thread:

  • Premodern Period | Léonas, Alexis. “The Septuagint in Premodern Study: A Bibliography.” Bulletin of the International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies 41 (2008): 93-113.
  • ca. 1860-1969 | Brock, Sebastian P., Charles T. Fritsch, and Sidney Jellicoe (eds.), A Classified Bibliography of the Septuagint. Leiden: Brill, 1973.
  • 1906-1986 | Tov, Emanuel. A Classified Bibliography of Lexical and Grammatical Studies on the Language of the Septuagint and Its Revisions. Jerusalem: Academon, 1983.
  • 1970-1993 | Dogniez, Cécile. Biliography of the Septuagint / Bibliographie De La Septante (1970-1993). VTSup 60. Leiden: Brill, 1995.
  • 1997-2012 | De Troyer, Kristin. “The Seventy-Two and Their Many Grandchildren: A Review of Septuagint Studies from 1997 Onward.” Currents in Biblical Research 11 (2012): 8-64.

There are a few other resources worth noting as well, including:

  • Jellicoe, Sidney. “Septuagint Studies in the Current Century.” Journal of Biblical Literature 88.2 (1969): 191-99.
  • Lust, Johann, “Selective Bibliography of the Septuagint.”
  • United Bible Societies, “Septuagint Bibliography” (mainly 1990-2002)
  • Wevers, J. William (1954), “Septuaginta-Forschungen,” TRu 22: 85–138.
  • Wevers, J. William (1968), “Septuaginta Forschungen Seit 1954,” TRu 33: 18–76.
  • Jones, Jennifer Brown. “The Septuagint and Contemporary Study.” In William A. Ross and W. Edward Glenny (eds.), T&T Clark Handbook of Septuagint Research. London: Bloomsbury T&T Clark, forthcoming.

Since this is a thing, it occurred to me that someone has to pick up the torch, since it’s coming up on ten years since De Troyer’s work. A lot has happened since then. So this page is aimed in that direction. For the record, the categories below are adopted with some modifications from Dogniez’s bibliography.

Now, I make absolutely no claims that this page represents an exhaustive bibliography. But that said, if you’re looking here and notice I have missed something, please let me know.
