This monograph by Tessa Rajak has its origins in six Grinfield lectures (1995-96) on the Septuagint, which dealt with the original, Old Greek texts and their later reception, as well as de novo writings. The intention of these lectures was to relate two fields of research that have unfortunately remained largely separate in the past: the study of Hellenistic Judaism and the study of the Greek Bible. The book's conclusion was construed in the context of a funded research project entitled 'Greek Bible in the Greco-Roman world', a field to which Rajak has contributed in many publications (e.g. as editor of Jewish Perspectives on Hellenistic Rulers. Berkeley, California: University of California Press, 2007).
