Question of the Day for Tuesday, May 21, 2013
Q. I am looking for an online English translation of the Catholic version of the “Greek Septuagint.” Do you know where I could find that?
P.B., via e-mail
A. Here’s a reply from TCA columnist Father Ray Ryland, Ph.D., J.D:
Dating from the middle of the third century B.C., the Septuagint is a translation from Hebrew to Greek of what we know as the Old Testament. Its name reflects the legend that it was made by 70 translators, working simultaneously. From the Church’s beginning, this translation has been her Old Testament. Your copy of a Catholic Bible will give you that Septuagint.
