This incomplete, early twentieth-century edition was one of the first modern attempts to bring textual criticism to bear on the Septuagint, the Greek version of the Hebrew scriptures which originated in the third century BCE. It is still widely consulted today. Originally issued in nine parts between 1906 and 1940, this reissue is bound in four volumes. This, the final volume, contains the books of Esther, Judith, and Tobit. Following Swete's smaller Septuagint (1887-1894) the running text is that of Codex Vaticanus (B) supplemented by Codex Alexandrinus (A) or N when B is defective. The edition includes an extensive critical apparatus, citing key uncial manuscripts and fragments, twenty-seven cursive manuscripts, many freshly collated for the edition, the Sahidic, Ethiopic, Syriac and Old Latin versions, and quotations from Latin writers including Cyprian and Augustine. It remains an invaluable resource for the study of the Septuagint.

Books of enduring scholarly value

For centuries, scripture and theology were the focus of prodigious amounts of scholarship and publishing,
dominated in the English-speaking world by the work of Protestant Christians. Enlightenment philosophy and
science, anthropology, ethnology and the colonial experience all brought new perspectives, lively debates and
heated controversies to the study of religion and its role in the world, many of which continue to this day. This series
explores the editing and interpretation of religious texts, the history of religious ideas and institutions, and not least
the encounter between religion and science.

The Old Testament in Greek
This incomplete, early twentieth-century edition was one of the first modern attempts to bring textual criticism to
bear on the Septuagint, the Greek version of the Hebrew scriptures which originated in the third century BCE. It
is still widely consulted today. Originally issued in nine parts between 1906 and 1940, this reissue is bound in four
volumes. This, the final volume, contains the books of Esther, Judith, and Tobit. Following Swete’s smaller Septuagint
(1887-1894) the running text is that of Codex Vaticanus (B) supplemented by Codex Alexandrinus (A) or N when
B is defective. The edition includes an extensive critical apparatus, citing key uncial manuscripts and fragments,
twenty-seven cursive manuscripts, many freshly collated for the edition, the Sahidic, Ethiopic, Syriac and Old Latin
versions, and quotations from Latin writers including Cyprian and Augustine. It remains an invaluable resource for
the study of the Septuagint.

Cambridge University Press has long been a pioneer in the reissuing of out-of-print titles from its own backlist,
producing digital reprints of books that are still sought after by scholars and students but could not be reprinted
economically using traditional technology. The Cambridge Library Collection extends this activity to a wider range
of books which are still of imp; ortance to researchers and professionals, either for the source material they contain,

The Syndics of the Press hope to make an announcement about the continuation of The OldTestament in Greek as soon as circumstances permit.




N our third volume we have found it impossible to retain the order of the Books of the
Septuagint followed by Dr Swete. The Books of Esther, Judith and Tobit are found in
many of the MSS. which contain the Historical Books. It seemed therefore desirable to publish
them first in this Volume before dealing with the Sapiential Books which are generally found in
a different set of MSS. Some time ago we decided to defer the publication of the Psalter till
a later date. The three books which we now publish form the third group in Dr Rahlfs's
Verzeichnis. They are sometimes found in the MSS. which have the Historical Books, but
more often new MSS. have to be quoted, and we have had to make a separate selection for each
Book, and to give separate lists of the MSS. used for each Book. The symbols used for MSS.
in the earlier volumes have been retained, but those used for MSS. no longer cited have been
re-assigned. The original scheme of adding a numeral after the letter (a2 etc.) to provide a separate
symbol for each MS. used has proved unworkable. Where the number of authorities quoted is
large, valuable space is lost. We find ourselves compelled to use a single letter for each minuscule quoted, and to provide a separate list for each Book. The publication of Dr Rahlfs's excellent
Verzeichnis in 1914, which includes the old Holmes and Parsons numbers where available, and
gives to each separate MS. its own number, supplies a standard enumeration. We shall in future
use the letters as symbols applying only to a single Book, and we give a list for each Book.
1. The ordinary text.
The following Uncial MSS. have been used:
B Codex Vaticanus. Rome, Vatican Gr. 1209.
A Codex Alexandrinus. London, British Museum, Royal 1 D. v-viii.
N Rome, Vatican Gr. 2io6 = V.
S Codex Friderico-Augustanus = N (part of Cod. Sinaiticus).
P A Papyrus Fragment (Rahlfs 967, 968) \
The following minuscules have been quoted:
a (108) Rome, Vat. Gr. 330 (for the "Lucianic" text, also contained in this MS., see below).
c (64) Paris, Bibl. Nat. Gr. 2.
d (107) Ferrara, Bibl. Comun. Gr. 188. 1.
e (46) Paris, Bibl. Nat. Coisl. Gr. 4.
f (583) Paris, Bibl. Nat. Gr. 1087.
g {76) Paris, Bibl. Nat. Gr. 4.
h (ss) Rome, Vat. Regin. Gr. 1.
j (243) Paris, Bibl. Nat. Coisl. Gr. 8.
k (58) Rome, Vat. Regin. Gr. 10.

By the kindness of Sir Frederic Kenyon, who lent us a copy of his transcription, we were able to include the readings of
this papyrus in our Edition before the sheets of Esther were printed off. He has since published it in The Chester Beatty
Biblical Papyri Fasciculus VII: Text (London, 1937; Plates, London, 1938), in which he has shewn that it forms part of
a Papyrus MS., in book-form, containing Ezekiel, Daniel (with Susanna and Bel) and Esther. In his opinion the MS. is not
later than the first half of the third century A.D.

p (106) Ferrara, Bibl. Comun. Gr. 187. 1.
q (120) Venice, St Mark's Gr. 4.
r (311) Moscow, Syn.-Bibl. Gr. 354.
s (130) Vienna, Hofbibl. Theol. Gr. 23.
u (542) Paris, Bibl. Nat. Gr. 10.
v (249) Rome, Vat. Pii II. Gr. 1.
w (248) Rome, Vat. Gr. 346.
z (93) London, British Museum, Royal 1 D. ii (for the "Lucianic" text, also contained in
this MS., see below).
2. "Lucianic" text.
This recension of Esther differs so much from the B-text that we found it necessary to print
it in full as an appendix. With the kind permission of the University Press of Gottingen we
have printed Lagarde's text (Ka0rip a)1 without alteration. Fresh collations have been made of
the MSS. cited by Lagarde, and we have also included the evidence of an Athos MS. (Vatopethi
513; see Rahlfs) which contains this recension, from a transcript made some years ago for the
Larger Edition of the Cambridge Septuagint by Dr Rendel Harris.
The variants of the following MSS. are cited:
b' (19) Rome, Chigi R. vi. 38 (now in the Vatican).
b (108) Rome.. Vat. Gr. 330.
e2 (93) London, British Museum, Royal 1 D. ii.
y (319) Athos, Vatopethi 513.
Some variants found in these MSS. which cannot be called substantial are quoted in our notes
for this recension, as they may have a bearing on the relations of these four MSS. It seemed
desirable to give students rather fuller information than is our usual custom. Without attempting
a full comparison of the two recensions, we have inserted, in special cases, in our notes on the
B-text an indication of the support given to the "Lucianic" text in authorities of the B-type,
by the addition of the words "(cf. Luc)."
Sahidic (CD). Sir Herbert Thompson's edition has been used, A Coptic Palimpsest containing
Joshua, Judges, Ruth, Judith and Esther. Oxford, 1911 (see Prefatory Note to vol. I. pt. 4).

Sabatier's text, based on Corbeiensis 7, has been used ("3LC). Some readings have also been
quoted from the MSS. Orator. B. vii (3L°) and Pechianus (UP), but we have not recorded fully
all the information contained in Sabatier's notes about the readings of these two MSS. We
have also quoted (iLm) Belsheim's Edition of the Books of Tobit, Judith and Esther from the
Munich MS. 6239 described more fully below (p. x). The Librarian of the Cambridge University
Library most kindly had a photographic reproduction made of this article, which we have been
allowed to use.

The presentation of the evidence for the text of Tobit offers special difficulties and we have
been obliged to modify our system in several ways. Dr Swete printed the Sinaitic text
" in extenso beneath the Vatican text, but in a smaller type, to denote its secondary character." He
divided the text into verses "corresponding as nearly as possible with those of the standard text"
(vol. II., Intr. p. vii). We are not prepared to express a definite opinion on the relation of the two
Greek texts, certainly not to describe the Sinaitic text as secondary. So we have printed it as
an appendix to that of B, which is of course supported by most authorities. This enables us to
remove from the notes on the B-text all material which refers to the Sinaitic MS. Even in the
case of Dr Swete's simpler notes the inclusion of Sinaitic material in notes on the B-text causes
some difficulties; and it would be very misleading to include it in notes which record the complex evidence of all the authorities quoted by us as giving a general support to the B-text.
The complete separation of the text and notes of the Sinaitic text seemed therefore necessary.
We have included in our notes on the Sinaitic text the readings of P, the Oxyrhynchus fragment
1076, which on the whole gives a text nearer to that of S, though it also contains some readings
of the ordinary text. Dr Rahlfs's description of it as "in eigenttimlicher Textform" is the safest
statement about the character of its text 1 .
Since the acquisition by the British Museum of the St Petersburg part of the Sinaitic MS. the
text of the manuscript has been most carefully examined, and much new information has been
acquired about the scribes who wrote the different parts of the MS. and later correctors. This
investigation confirms on the whole the accuracy of Tischendorf's work. Dr Lake's Facsimile,
excellent as it is for the reproduction of the text, does not always enable students to form
a judgment on the subject of corrections by later hands. The introductory notes in Tischendorf's
facsimile-printed edition remain the best source of information on this subject. Mr H. J. M. Milne
and Mr T. C. Skeat have very kindly made a fresh collation of the text of Tobit from the MS.
itself, the results of which are incorporated in our Edition. After consultation with them we
have decided to retain, at any rate for the present Fascicule, Dr Swete's system of denoting the
hands of correctors which itself reproduces the work of Tischendorf. We have only introduced
a few corrections kindly supplied to us by Messrs Milne and Skeat. Perhaps we may be allowed
to point out that our retention, for the present, of Dr Swete's system implies no rejection of the

views expressed by Milne and Skeat 1 about the corrector's hands of S, or of Lake's view, held
also by them, that the "Pamphilus" readings added in the margin of Esther and other books are
in a different hand from that of the scribe denoted by Tischendorf Sc-a, for which Lake suggested
the symbol SPamPh-.
Sahidic (©). The Editions of Ciasca (<2>), Rome, 1885, and Maspero (®2), Paris, 1897, have
been used, the. latter supplemented by a fragment containing Tob. iv. 6-16 (CD?) which Sir
Stephen Gaselee published in the Journal of Theological Studies (vol. XI. p. 253). He has shewn
that it is a continuation of the fragment of c. iv published by Maspero and part of the same MS.
Ethiopic (IE). Dillmann's Edition has been used. See note on Judith.
Syriac (£fe). Lagarde's Edition (Libri V.T. Apocryphi Syriace, Leipzig, 1861) has been used.
The character of the text from which this version has been made is not homogeneous. The
earlier part is a literal translation of the B-text. From c. vii. 11 onwards the underlying Greek
text is closely allied to the form of text found in the MSS. 44. 106. 107.
Latin. The Old Latin Version stands apart from all others as the only authority which
supports the Sinaitic type of text throughout the Book of Tobit. The acquisition of the greater
part of the Sinaitic MS. by the British Museum and the careful examination of its content have
aroused special interest in the MS. and its text at the present time. The peculiar Greek text of
the Book of Tobit contained in this MS. raises special problems. There is a good deal of evidence
for the "Sinaitic" recension at an early date, including the sixth-century vellum fragment (see
above, p. vii) containing the text of Tobit ii. 2-8, the Old Latin Version, and quotations in Cyprian,
Lucifer and Augustine's Speculum. But the text supported by the Vatican MS. (B), whether the
original form of the Greek of Tobit or a deliberate recension of an earlier and longer text, is
supported by most other authorities. There is, as is well known, a third form of text of part of
the Book, from vii. 10, found in three cursive MSS. (H. and P. 44, 106, 107), generally supported
by the Syriac Version, and occasionally by other evidence. But this third form seems to be
founded on the B-text, though it sometimes agrees with the Sinaitic text in some phrases and
passages. No doubt there has been "mixture" between the two forms of text.
But if the Old Latin has therefore special importance, its evidence is difficult to interpret
and record. (1) The Greek Codex Sinaiticus does not always give us the S-type in its earliest
form, though its underlying text must have been of the S-type. (2) The MSS. of the Old Latin
Version known to us, complete or incomplete, are not all of one type. (3) The Latin MS. (C)
which most closely reproduces the S-type of text has an Old Latin text only as far as Tobit vi. 12.
The rest is Vulgate. An examination of the Old Latin text found in these early chapters
suggests that it is based on an older type of Latin text which has been corrected into closer
conformity with the Greek form found in Codex Sinaiticus. It would be difficult, and probably
misleading, to present the Latin evidence for the whole Book of Tobit in notes which collated
it with the Greek of B or S. We have decided therefore to print a complete Latin text, with
notes recording Latin variants. In general we have reprinted2 the text of Sabatier, save that
some alterations have been made where the available evidence suggests the superiority of other
readings and the spelling of certain words has been corrected.
See Scribes and Correctors of the Codex Sinaiticus, by H. J. M. Milne and T. C. Skeat, British Museum, 1938, especially
pp. 40 ff.
We have numbered the verses according to the numbers in our text of S: the numbers in brackets are the numbers of
the verses in Sabatier where, that is, Sabatier's numeration does not tally with that of S. Perhaps mention may be made here
of A. Neubauer's not very accurate reprint of Sabatier's Latin {The Book of Tobit, Oxford, 1878, pp. lxviiiff.}.


Sabatier's text is based on two MSS. which are extant for the whole of the Book. They
seem to present an earlier form of Old Latin than those contained in other available sources.
1. Codex Regius. Paris, Bibl. Nat. 3564. Cent. ix.
2. Codex Sangermanensis. Paris, Bibl. Nat. 4, of the same age as 1, of which Sabatier
says "multis in locis rasuris et lituris foedatur," quoting it as MS. Germ. 4.
In his notes Sabatier cites fully the readings of two other MSS.
3. Codex Sangermanensis. Paris, Bibl. Nat. 15. It contains the whole Book as far as xiii. 2,
after which the words "Explicit Tobi iustus" are to be found. Of this MS. Sabatier writes
"pluribus in locis mutilus est ac potissimum extremis duobus capitibus pene integris, quae
etiam duo capita imperito forsan scribae latuisse uidentur": he denotes it MS. Germ. 15.
4. The MS. to which reference has already been made. Sabatier describes it as "olim
Reginae Sueciae, nunc Vaticano num. 7,cuius aetatem ignoramus." There is a description of it in the
Catalogue recently published, Codices Reginenses Latini, torn. I. codices 1-250. Recensuit Andreas
Wilmart, Bibliotheca Vaticana, 1937, p. 17. It is the most interesting of the MSS. used by
Sabatier, though containing only the Old Latin text of i. 1—vi. 12, the rest of the text being
Vulgate. A further account of this MS. is given by Bianchini (Vindiciae Canonicarum Scripturarum, Rome, 1740, pp. cccl. sqq.), in which he prints the text of the MS. in full for Tobit i. 1—
vi. 14, and a list of variants, slight and unimportant, from the ordinary Vulgate text, which are
found in the later chapters. He assigns the MS. to the 10th century. We have corrected
Sabatier's notes by Bianchini's text, which is generally regarded as more correct. Dom Wilmart
in his new Catalogue makes no mention of Bianchini's description of the MS. and transcription
of the Old Latin part of it.
The text of this MS. is certainly nearest to that of the Sinaitic Greek Manuscript (S), but it
is probably not the earliest form of the Old Latin Version.
5. Some interesting variants are presented by the Mozarabic Breviary which seems to
have some claim to independence. This contains Tobit xiii. 11 to the end of the chapter and is
quoted in extenso by Sabatier in his notes.
6. The only MS. addition to this Latin evidence known to us is that of the Munich MS.
published by Belsheim in a Norwegian periodical {Det Kongelige Norske Videnskabers Selskabs
Skrifter, Trondheim. 1893). It is mentioned in Kennedy's article, The Old Latin Versions,
Hastings's Dictionary of the Bible, vol. III. p. 51, but apparently has not been used by editors.
Belsheim describes the MS. as "Munich 6239, formerly belonging to the Library pi Freisingen in
Bavaria, and containing f. 1-36 Job (Vulgate), 37-61 Tobit, 62-87 Judith, 88-103 Esther."
In order to simplify printing we have used plain capitals without the numbers attached to
them in Sabatier, and for his MS. Germ. n. 4 we have substituted P. These six witnesses are
accordingly represented by the symbols R P G C Moz and M. The symbol Cer denotes readings
recorded by Belsheim in his footnotes of a Milan M S ^ . ( = E . 26 infer, of the Ambrosian library
according to Kennedy in Hastings loc. cit.) which is alleged by him (p. 89) to have been
published in 1890 by A. Ceriani. P* denotes a correction in the margin by the scribe of P •
P b? denotes a correction by a later scribe. Mb denotes a correction in a later hand in the
Munich MS.

We have also included the evidence of the following Latin authors, using the editions
published in the Vienna Corpus Scriptoruni Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum:
Cyprian (Cyp) ed. Hartel, Vienna, 1868.
Lucifer (Luc) ed. Hartel, Vienna, 1876.
Augustine, Speculum (Spec) ed. Weihrich, De Divinis Scripturis sive Speculum. Vienna,
Reference has been made occasionally to four of the Greek MSS. enumerated above (p. vii),
namely to B S d and p, where it seemed important to draw attention to the agreements in the
Old Latin Version with the B-type of text or other forms, and also to the Vulgate (Vg.).

Death, after a short illness, put an end to Dr Brooke's long labours just before the last few
sheets of this fascicule were ready for press. A first draft of the above Prefatory Note was found
among his papers in an envelope addressed to the University Press. It has been revised and
extended, particularly that section of it which relates to the Old Latin of Tobit, by the Rev. I. D.
Edwards and Mr C. R. C. Allberry, both of Christ's College.
