Chapter Summary

This chapter considers a subset of the ϰαίγε group: that is the translation of Ruth, the Song of Songs and Lamentations. It also considers the translations of two other megillot beyond the group: those of Esther and Ecclesiastes. The situation from the Greek translation of Esther is not surprising since the "acknowledgment of receipt" which concludes attests that were brought to Egypt hundred or a hundred and fifty years before was beginning of the translation business and recensions of ϰαίγε group. According to all indications, it appears that if the canonicity of a book could pose a serious Rabbinate question after the destruction of the Second Temple, it was that of Ecclesiastes. The Scroll of Esther is intimately linked to the feast of Purim. The Sopherim Treaty (XIV 3) mentions the liturgical reading of the Song of Songs, Ruth and Lamentations. The original text of the chapter is in French.
