Chapter Summary

This chapter studies the variants of Psalter of the Peshitta (P-Ps) with relation to Masoretic texts (MT) that should be attributed to changes during the process of Syriac manuscript transmission. Just as in the case of the hypothesis of a different Hebrew Vorlage, recourse to a change in the manuscript tradition should be had with caution. Precisely for this reason, the chapter occupies the last place among those dedicated to studying the deviations of P-Ps in relation to MT, after those devoted to translation technique, to particular interpretations, to the hypothesis of the influence of Septuagint (LXX) or Targum (Tg) and to a different Hebrew Vorlage. The chapter begins by studying the changes in textual transmission that have left traces in the manuscript tradition, and deals with the hypothetical changes that have affected all the MSS, so that the original reading the author proposes would have been lost.

Keywords: Hebrew Vorlage; Masoretic texts (MT); Psalter of the Peshitta (P-Ps); Septuagint (LXX); Targum (Tg); textual transmission
