Chapter Summary

G. Veltri's study, Eine Tara für den König Talmai deals with the evaluation of and references to biblical translations, more especially the LXX, in rabbinic and Jewish-Hellenistic sources. This chapter seeks to solve mainly one question and the answer to which is provided in the summary, although the author's views are also expressed throughout the book. Veltri points out the difficulties inherent in the Epistle of Aristeas and in the stories in the rabbinic literature. Although according to Veltri, some of the rabbis knew Greek, and some of the readings/changes derived directly from the LXX, the rabbis conceived of them as reflecting a different form of exegesis, so that the possibility of a different Hebrew Vorlage of the LXX never entered their minds. Veltri demonstrated convincingly that in the early rabbinic sources the LXX is presented differently from what has been thought hitherto.
