The Historical and Theological Lexicon of the Septuagint (HTLS)

The Historical and Theological Lexicon of the Septuagint (HTLS, Tübingen, Mohr Siebeck, 4 vols., 2020-) is a collective, interdisciplinary project, a multi-volume dictionary on the most significant terms or vocabulary groups found in the Septuagint Bible.

Each term is analyzed within Classical and Hellenistic Greek, papyri and inscriptions, the Septuagint and its Hebrew equivalents, Jewish literature in Greek, the New Testament and early Christian literature, in order to investigate its meanings, usages, and possible semantic evolutions.
HTLS fills an important gap in philological, historical and biblical research.

The FSCIRE project, directed by Eberhard Bons and Daniela Scialabba and coordinated by Anna Mambelli, plans to release four volumes for Mohr Siebeck publishing house, Tübingen.

The first volume is already available here.

Some of the most significant entries in preparation for the second volume will be presented by their authors at this HTLS workshop, 14-15 March 2023, FSCIRE, Bologna.
