Doctoral thesis accepted for publication in the Vetus Testamentum Supplementum series

Dr Randall X. Gauthier completed his PhD at Ancient Studies under the supervision of Prof Johann Cook in 2010. His doctoral thesis has been accepted for publication in theĀ Vetus Testamentum Supplementum (BRILL) series. In Psalms 38 and 145 of the Old Greek Version, Dr Gauthier provides a word by word, sentence by sentence, commentary on Psalms 38 and 145 in the Septuagint (LXX) version, or more accurately, the Old Greek (OG) version. Specifically, this study attempts to understand the semantic meaning of these psalms at the point of their inception, or composition, i.e. as translated literary units derivative of a presumed Semitic Vorlage (Expected publication date: November 2014).
