Drew Longacre

Drew Longacre has been invited to conduct post-doctoral research on the Septuagint manuscripts of Exodus at the University of Helsinki's Centre of Excellence in 'Changes in Sacred Texts and Traditions.'

Drew is currently completing his doctoral project on the Exodus manuscripts from Qumran with Dr Charlotte Hempel at Birmingham and will be working in Helsinki on a comprehensive (re-)consideration of the earliest, continuous-text, Greek witnesses to the text of Exodus with a view both to reconstructing the original Greek translation and to elucidating how and why the text changed over time and what this tells us about the authority and reception of the book in antiquity.

Congratulations from all at ITSEE!
