Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a wide-ranging discussion and analysis of Jewish responses to the LXX, along with a critique of the lack of interest and/or faulty information about it. It explores Suzanne Daniel's, examining how "un-Jewish" it was. The chapter provides a few examples to demonstrate the extent of the concerns - understanding of what Judaism has meant in the past and could mean in the present and future. It draws attention to only one of a number of relevant articles in The Forward, which is a widely circulated Jewish weekly. Each issue contains a column, written by a correspondent using the learned pseudonym "Philologus." Reporters in both the Jewish and the general press appear to have an aversion to the term Septuagint in places where it would seem to be especially appropriate.

Keywords: Jewish responses to the LXX; Jews; Judaism; Septuagint
