The Greek Pentateuch and the Library of Alexandria

AuthorsFernández Marcos, Natalio
Greek Pentateuch
Library of Alexandria
Issue Date13-May-2011
AbstractThe Bible has been present as an actor in all the great transformations of our Western civilisation. The most influential translation in Antiquity was that of the Greek Pentateuch. It was through this that the wisdom of Israel passed from the medium of a Semitic to an Indo- European language, the Greek, the universal language of the time. Thanks to its adoption as an official Bible by the new religion, Christianity, and thanks to the new translations from the Greek to the languages of the different nations within the Roman Empire, the Bible spread out to the Eastern and Western frontiers of the oijkoumevnh. This process, which was to have such important consequences, started in the first part of the 3rd century BCE in Ptolemaic Alexandria.
