And this is also my experience when I look back on the last two decades of the 20th century. Bible translations were my entry ticket into the study of Judaism, something like a window on the characteristic landscape of Jewish literature, history and philosophy.
She told me how seventy-two sages worked out a miracle translating the Bible in separate cells using the same words and expressions. I still do not know where and from whom she had got the tale. I suppose that she heard it from oral tradition, probably told by my grandfather who, being welltraveled and educated, used to also read out the Bible to his wife and his mostly unwilling children in the cold and dark evenings of Calabrian winters, as my father told me.
Biblical stories, a mystical world of angels, demons, spirits and magical practices and convictions were the world I navigated in my childhood, a variegated cosmos of Mediterranean origins, just as the cultural experience of the Jews who penetrated in almost every corner of the ancient world was also distinctively Mediterranean.
The penetration of Jewish culture into the European world also has something to do with the Septuagint and the Jewish sages who performed a wondrous work, translating the library of the Jewish past into the world of Hellenistic culture.
Later in my academic study, I learned that the theory of the Jewish rejection of the Septuagint, spread all over the world by willing church fathers and their modern scholarly followers, is misleading, historically, psychologically and in terms of literature. I hardly found any evidence that Judaism rejected its own literary and historical past because others identify with it, considering themselves part of it.
Identity is a multifarious world where the singular is as erroneous as, alas, existential. Everybody searches for an identity which can always x foreword change, it all depends on how many conscious moments a human being experiences in his or her daily routine.
In speaking of historical consciousness, we can see that there is no moment in which a religion, people or better, encircled community totally rejects its own past. Following this conviction, I prepared my PhD at the Free University in Berlin, researching the origins of Rabbinic tradition concerning the Septuagint and the nature of translating in antiquity.
My research, published in German inproduced a well-received book with numerous reviews in leading journals. Among others, a very productive review by Emanuel Tov was, although generally very positive, especially critical of my method and some of my results.
He strongly and emphatically defended a Rabbinic rejection of the Septuagint because the Christians adopted it as their Bible. A step further came ten years later, in Julywhen Emanuel and I first met at Groningen and later also in Halle, Germany ; Emanuel told me about his new insights regarding my Torah le-Melekh Talmai, stating that he now agrees with my interpretation of the Talmudic passages concerning the Septuagint, among others Bavli Megillah 9a.
I confess I could not answer properly on that occasion and this book is in a way an attempt to react to his new position. For in the meantime, my studies on the canonization of the Hebrew and Greek Torah have led me to other results: That is the core of the following book, which deals with the Septuagint in Christian and Jewish sources, the fortune of Aquila and the destiny of Ben Sira in the context of canonization and deconstruction.
My sincere thanks to all the scholars and friends who in one way or another contributed to this book, my teachers in Berlin as well as in Rome, my colleagues in Jewish studies as well as my scholarly adversaries in the biblical sciences. I would like to express my special thanks to John J.
Collins for his careful and painstaking reading of the book, his improving of some wording, and for having accepted this monograph for the series. Supplements to the Journal for the Study of Judaism.
I am of course fully responsible for all mistakes and errors. The book is dedicated to the memory of my grandmother Teresa Guarascio and to my grandfather Salvatore Veltri, in remembrance of a world of hermeneutic references which has ceased to exist——one may wonder if definitively——at least in the European countries.
Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them. Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body Kohelet In common with clothing, household furnishings and many other accompaniments of daily life, scholarship has its fashions, which reflects, in their evervarying forms and patterns, the changing interests of the times Sidney Jellicoe.
Peeters, ; John Barton and Michael Wolter, eds. Harvard University Press, Until the last decade of the 20th century, there were scarcely any monographs in this area of study, with the notable exception of the dissertation by Sid Z. Leiman in ,4 devoted entirely to the canonization of the Bible.
In addition to numerous articles on the topics, two particular monographs by Menahem Haran5 and Moshe Halbertal6 should be mentioned because they tried to do justice to the major implications and consequences of textuality connected with and dependent on canon and authority.
