Wieland Willker on the Text Criticism list has alerted us to a revised edition of Septuagina to be published later this summer by the German Bible Society. The revision was done by Robert Hanhart and includes over a thousand minor corrrections and supplements to Rahlfs’ edition.
Here is the information from the German Bible Society:
Septuaginta (Das Alte Testament Griechisch)
Editio altera (= 2., durchgesehene und verbesserte Auflage),
12 x 18.4 cm
LXXIV + 2127 pages
In an article published by Robert Hanhart last year (“Rechenschaftsbericht zur editio altera der Handausgabe der Septuaginta von Alfred Rahlfs” Vetus Testamentum 55  450-60), it was made clear that this would only be a minor revision that will leave Rahlfs’ base text substantially intact.
This new “Rahlfs-Hanhart” edition will be out in July 2006.
