The ancient Hexateuch, MS Ambrosianus A 147 inf., produced at the beginning of the 5th century, shows an unusual attitude towards the biblical text on the part of those who restored the codex at the end of the 11th century: they not only retraced the ink throughout and replaced some lost sheets, but also revised the biblical text of the Septuagint in order to make it conform to the Masoretic text. The book provides a complete analysis of each individual modification introduced by the restorers; specifically, it makes comparisons with extant Jewish and Christian Greek translations of the Bible (hexaplaric variants, Jewish scholia, the text of the so called Graecus Venetus, the Greek text of the Constantinople Polyglott Pentateuch). Finally, some hypotheses are given concerning the Christian milieu where the restoration and the revision of the biblical codex may have taken place.

Abstract

The ancient Hexateuch, MS Ambrosianus A 147 inf., produced at the beginning of the 5th century, shows an unusual attitude towards the biblical text on the part of those who restored the codex at the end of the 11th century: they not only retraced the ink throughout and replaced some lost sheets, but also revised the biblical text of the Septuagint in order to make it conform to the Masoretic text. The book provides a complete analysis of each individual modification introduced by the restorers; specifically, it makes comparisons with extant Jewish and Christian Greek translations of the Bible (hexaplaric variants, Jewish scholia, the text of the so called Graecus Venetus, the Greek text of the Constantinople Polyglott Pentateuch). Finally, some hypotheses are given concerning the Christian milieu where the restoration and the revision of the biblical codex may have taken place.
