1875 Origenis Hexaplorum quae supersunt
The Old Testament of Origen, “Origenis Hexaplorum”, containing the complete Genesis to Malachi Old Testament in two huge volumes. The original Hebrew is paired with detailed Latin commentary, and Greek as well, in this very historically important work. The term “Hexaplorum” (Hexapla), in this case, does not refer to six parallel columns of text (as it does in the 1841 Hexapla New Testament of Bagster), but rather, it is a reference to the six source documents for the Old Testament (four of which were actually Greek Septuagint) used by Origen.
E Typographeo Clarendoniano, 1875. Volumes 1 & 2.
Origenis Hexaplorum quae supersunt (Oxford, 1867–1875), now well known as Field’s Hexapla, a text reconstructed from the extant fragments of Origen’s work of that name, together with materials drawn from the Syro-hexaplar version and the Septuagint of Robert Holmes and James Parsons.
Gorgeous edition of a fascinating two volume Origenis Hexaplorum. In great condition with clean pages. Marble endpapers and Red tinted page edges.
