Summary note
"This volume presents the main lectures of the 23rd Congress of the International Organization for the Study of the Old Testament (IOSOT) held in Aberdeen, United Kingdom, in August 2019. Twenty internationally distinguished scholars present their current research on the Hebrew Bible, including the literary history of the Hebrew text, its Greek translation, and the history of interpretation. Some focus on the semantic and syntactic features of the biblical text and its impact on cultural memory while others deal with textual witnesses in the Dead Sea scrolls, Ethiopic sources, and Arabic translations. The volume gives readers a representative view of recent research on the Hebrew Bible"-- Provided by publisher.
"The 23rd Congress of the International Organization for the Study of the Old Testament (IOSOT) was held in Aberdeen, United Kingdom, from 4 to 9 August 2019, under the presidency of Professor Joachim Schaper. Professor Grant Macaskill was the Congress Secretary. It was the second time an IOSOT congress took place in Scotland (and the fourth time in the United Kingdom), and it was held in conjunction with the congresses of the International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies (IOSCS), the International Organization for Masoretic Studies (IOMS), the International Organization for Qumran Studies (IOQS), and the International Syriac Language Project (ISLP)."
