A small group of North American and German scholars, mostly from among the translators associated with The New English Translation of the Septuagint, gathered in September 2002 in Bangor, Maine to talk shop. The 22 essays that emerged from that conference discuss the Septuagint as translation and/or interpretation, issues concerning individual books, comprehensive issues and problems concerning several books, and the receptive history of the Septuagint in early Judaism and Christianity.
