Since its first publication in 1935, Alfred Rahlfs´ Septuagint edition has provided an important basis for Septuagint research worldwide. To ensure that this will continue to be the case in the future, the internationally acclaimed Septuagint researcher, Robert Hanhart, has re-edited the German Bible Society´s reference edition of the Rahlfs-Septuagint.
The Greek Bible text and the critical apparatus were corrected and supplemented in far more than a thousand individual places. As of now, the resulting – favorably priced – “Editio altera” will be the new definitive Septuagint reference edition. From now on, for any academic work performed on the Greek Old Testament, the following equation will apply: Septuagint = “Rahlfs-Hanhart”!
- The definitive reference edition of the Septuagint
- With over a thousand improvements and supplements to text and apparatus
- Revised by one of the world´s leading Septuagint researchers: Prof. Dr. Dr. Robert Hanhart
