    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Insights from modern translation studies have found little application until now in research on the Septuagint. This study applies the functionalist (skopos) theory of translation to the Greek Book of Numbers as a way of determining the translation's "position in life." The Greek Book of Numbers is shown to be a document from the Alexandrine diaspora, whose skopos is located between historicization and modernization.
