LXX Article in the Reif Festschrift

A festschrift for Stefan Reif is about to be published:

'From a Sacred Source': Genizah Studies in Honour of Professor Stefan C. Reif. Cambridge Genizah Studies Series, Volume 1. Edited by B.M. Outhwaite and S. Bhayro. Leiden: Brill, 2011.

I mention it here because one of the articles deals with a subject of continuing interest for this blog.

Judith Olszowy-Schlanger, "An Early Palimpsest Scroll of the Book of Kings from the Cairo Genizah."

For previous posts on the LXX materials from the Cairo Genizah, see here, and follow the links back. I assume the article by Olszowy-Schlanger deals with the Aquila fragments of Kings first published by F. C. Burkitt.

No, in fact she deals with a Bodleian fragment (hiss!), MS Or. Heb. f. 27, ff. 10–22, which contains a palimpsest of 1 Kings 19:8–21. It's a good article. Well worth buying the volume for...

Thanks for the clarification. I'll definitely try to get my hands on the volume, though I'll be looking for it in a library rather than buying it (for $216!).
