Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book LXX-Isaiah as Translation and Interpretation contains the table of contents, preface, acknowledgements and abbreviations. The book explores the study and writing of literature in the translator's Alexandrian milieu. After surveying the scholarship that stands behind the prevailing view that the Isaiah translator was captivated with "contemporizing" or "actualizing" the book of Isaiah as the author rendered it into Greek, the book addresses the study and production of literature in the Museum of Alexandria. It also explores Isaiah 28 as a test case for an alternative description of the translator's approach to his task. Finally the book offers a sketch of the translator as interpreter.

Keywords: Alexandrian milieu; book of Isaiah
