Hosea: A Commentary based on Hosea in Codex Vaticanus

Just saw this posted by Brill:

Hosea cover

 

Rather than studying the LXX of Hosea mainly as a text-critical resource for the Hebrew or as a help for interpreting the Hebrew, this commentary, as part of the Septuagint Commentary Series, primarily examines the Greek text of Hosea as an artifact in its own right to seek to determine how it would have been understood by early Greek readers who were unfamiliar with the Hebrew. This commentary is based on the uncorrected text of Vaticanus, and it contains a copy of that text with notes discussing readings that differ from modern editions of the LXX along with a literal translation ofthat text. This commentary also has an introduction to the Minor Prophets in the Septuagint. It is relevant for anyone studying the LXX or the book of Hosea.

You can find it here. Also, see the forthcoming volume on Amos.

    This looks fascinating

  2. Quite exciting. I’ve been anticipating these volumes. Sadly, my paper on the Septuagint version of Jonah is due this semester and that volume is still forthcoming.

  3. Really glad to see this series continuing.
