Chapter Summary

Much has been written on Antioch, the city founded by Seleucus on the river Orontes, second only to Alexandria in importance for the Jewish community in the Hellenistic and Roman period, the first place where the followers of Jesus were called 'Christians'. This chapter focuses on the reading of Isaiah in this geographical area which produced some of the most brilliant and original commentators and exegetes of the Septuagint. After some remarks on the Scriptures as read by the Antiochene Fathers, the chapter concentrates on the analysis of the Antiochene text commonly used in the public reading of the Bible to conclude with the kind of exegesis and hermeneutics carried out by the authors living in this district, the subject of some relevant monographs written over the last decades.

Keywords: Antiochene text; Book of Isaiah; Greek text; Septuagint
