The Peshiṭta as a Translation contains the eleven papers which were read at the Second Peshiṭta Symposium, held in Leiden 19-21 August 1993, as well as two reports on the ongoing work on the Peshiṭta in Stellenbosch and Leiden, and as, an Appendix, an update of the Annotated Bibliography of the Peshiṭta of the Old Testament (MPI 5, 1989).The papers discuss various aspects of the Peshiṭta as a Translation: its translation technique(s), its relation to Septuagint and Targum, its language, and its use for text-critical purposes. This new addition to the MPI-series will be important for scholars who are engaged in research of the Peshiṭta, and in the history of the Old Testament text, as well as for Syriacists.
