Last Chance: Göttingen Septuagint Shipping Soon!

Göttingen Septuagint

Last year we posted the Göttingen Septuagint (65 vols.) on Pre-Pub—the largest Septuagint project ever undertaken. Now, we’re just a week away from shipping the text and the apparatus, which gives you one final chance to get this massive Septuagint at a phenomenal price.

The version that ships next week will include the text and the apparatus. We are still completing the morphology, and it will be released in stages during the next few months. We know that many of our users will benefit from having the text and apparatus next week, even if the morphology isn’t ready yet. Many Septuagint scholars have been waiting for the Logos edition of the text and the apparatus, and we didn’t want to wait until the morphology was complete to begin releasing what’s available now.

The good news is that because Logos 4 updates automatically, you’ll get the morphology the moment it’s completed. There’s nothing extra you need to do to get it.

About the Göttingen Septuagint

The Göttingen Septuagint represents the largest Septuagint project ever undertaken. Published between 1931 and 2006, the 24-volume Göttingen Septuagint contains the most authoritative critical apparatus of the Greek Old Testament ever assembled.

Combining textual evidence from countless manuscripts and ancient sources—including Philo, Josephus, and the Church Fathers—the Göttingen Septuagint is the most detailed and elaborate critical edition of the Septuagint ever published.

The Göttingen Septuagint is the fruit of seven decades of research and publication work. Alfred Rahlfs began the project in the 1920s, and published the volumes on Genesis and Psalms before his death in 1935. William Kappler worked on the Maccabeus volumes before his death in 1944, and Robert Hanhart finished the volume on II Maccabeus and completed III Maccabeus in 1960. Between 1939 and 1957, Joseph Ziegler labored on the books of the prophets, as well as Ieremias-Baruch-Threni-Epistula Ieremiae, Sapientia Salomonis, and Ecclesiasticus.

Last Chance!

Remember, when the Göttingen Septuagint ships in a few days, the Pre-Pub price will jump, so you still have a few more days to pre-order at the current price.

To give you an idea of how good a deal this is, remember that the print version would set you back over $3,000.00. Other digital editions cost $400.00 for just the Pentateuch. That makes pre-ordering the entire Göttingen Septuagint for $349.95 from Logos the right choice. That’s an amazing deal on 65 resources in 24 volumes!

    Thank you. I can only speak for myself but I will greatly benefit from the text even if the morphology is not yet complete. I can’t thank you enough for making this available.

    Thank you so much for making this available to us at this incredible price. Whenever the morphology is ready, that will be icing on the already incredible “cake.”
