A Commentary Based on the texts in Codex Vaticanus
Author:
This work is the first major commentary of LXX Baruch and the Epistle of Jeremiah in English. Rather than seeing LXX mainly as a text-critical resource or as a window on a now-lost Hebrew text, this commentary, as part of the Septuagint Commentary Series, interprets Baruch and EpJer as Greek texts and from the perspective of Greek readers unfamiliar with Hebrew. Included are a transcription and an English translation of Codex Vaticanus, the oldest extant manuscript of the books, and a detailed commentary. Another major contribution is the utilisation of the sense-delimitation (paragraphs) of Codex Vaticanus and other codices to explore how early readers interpreted the text.

Abstract

This chapter offers a detailed discussion of the three scribes who copied the codex of Philo of Alexander at Oxyrhynchus, paying particular attention to non-textual features, such as sense-unit divisions, nomina sacra, page layout, and other sigla or marks. This investigation identifies common features and unique traits for the three scribes and argues that the scribes shared certain practices when making this codex.
