Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on flowers in the Septuagint, in the hope that Raija Sollamo will find it both a fitting and an original surprise. The goal is to contribute to the domain in question. It hopes to make a specific contribution to the study of the translation technique of the Septuagint in relation to Song of Songs. The study begins with the rendering of flowers in the LXX, then deals in turn with trees and fruits. Next, the study discusses the translation of herbs and spices. The study concludes with a summary and interpretation of the results arising from the three separate paragraphs, with a view to an adequate characterisation of the translation technique of Song of Songs on the basis of the studied very specific criterion, and the confrontation thereof with the results of the study of the rendering of hapax legomena in LXX Song of Songs.

Keywords: flowers; LXX of Song of Songs; Raija Sollamo; Septuagint
