septuaginta The Research Project for Textual Criticism of the Septuagint originated with the assignment of Professor Anneli Aejmelaeus to prepare the critical Septuagint edition of the First Book of Samuel. It has expanded to include in its scope of research full-fledged text-historical investigation, not only of the Septuagint, but also of the daughter-versions and of the Hebrew text of the Books of Samuel – all areas essentially connected with each other and with the editorial task. The methodological orientation of the research is text-critical and translation-technical. At the moment the project group includes five doctoral students and a research assistant. The project also has several international collaboration partners.
