Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
Before the Dead Sea scrolls were discovered, our knowledge of the early transmission of the Old Testament in Greek was based largely on the hypotheses of writers from the third to the fifth century. Kevin O’Connell’s study isolates, evaluates, and dates within quite narrow limits three separate strands of first- and second-century Jewish rewriting of the Greek Book of Exodus. His detailed investigations reveal that Theodotion’s version of Exodus reflects the present Masoretic text almost exactly and is itself based on a slightly revised form of the Old Greek.
