Daily Gleanings (7 June 2019)

John Meade is edging closer to the publication of his volume of Hexaplaric fragments for Job 22–42:

I can finally announce that my critical edition is set to be released this Fall. I still need to work through  another round of proofs this summer, but it will appear by SBL in San Diego. This is the first volume to be published by the Hexapla Institute in Peeters’ new series, Origen’s Hexapla: A Critical Edition of the Extant Fragments.

For more, see ETC. If you can’t wait until volumes in this series are released, see “Field’s Edition of Origen’s Hexapla.”

According to Brill,

To celebrate the 50th volume of the Journal for the Study of Judaism, selected articles from the past 50 volumes will be available for free downloading during 2019. A new batch of 5 articles will become available every month.


Field’s Edition of Origen’s Hexapla

Since 1875, Frederick Field’s edition of Origen’s Hexapla has been the standard reference for the work. A new edition is in preparation under the auspices of the Hexapla Project. But, for the present, Field’s work remains an invaluable resource. His two-volume edition is available via Internet Archive.

N.B.: The Internet Archive link in the Hexapla Project’s “Editions of the Hexaplaric Fragments” goes only to a page that provides only Field’s first volume, containing Genesis–Esther.1 The second volume, containing Job–Malachi, is available on a separate page.

  1. The above link to the Hexapla Project has been correct. Unfortunately, the website seems not to have been answering requests for pages for some time.
