Leiden: Brill, 2007. Pp. viii + 468. Cloth. $264.00. ISBN 900415552X. Jan Joosten Université Marc Bloch Strasbourg, France This is the fourth volume to appear in the Septuagint Commentary Series, directed by S. E. Porter, R. S. Hess, and J. Jarick, after A. G. Auld’s Joshua (2005), N. C. Croy’s 3 Maccabees (2006), and D. deSilva’s 4 Maccabees (2006). The originality of the project is to propose an analysis based on one specific manuscript and not, as in other recent projects on the Septuagint, on an eclectic edition. In the present case Codex Alexandrinus has been chosen, since both Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus are deficient in large parts of Genesis. The volume contains a short introduction to the Septuagint and its investigation in recent times (1–29); an edition of Codex Alexandrinus of Genesis (passages that are missing in Alexandrinus are supplied from Cottonianus) with English translation on facing pages (32–201); and a running commentary on the Greek and Hebrew texts (205–452); and a bibliography and indexes. The Greek text of Codex Alexandrinus (henceforth A) follows that of Swete’s edition of 1887. Apparently, no photographs or facsimiles were used. As is explained on page 24, an electronic text based on Rahlfs’s critical edition was modified so as to make it conform to Swete’s text. This is a convenient way to produce a printed text in the age of computer technology, but it is not a very sure method to provide an accurate edition of the text. [Full Review]
