The Septuagint is the most influential of the Greek versions of the Torah. The exact circumstances of its creation are uncertain, but different versions of a legend about the translation have existed since antiquity. Dr. Wasserstein from Vanderbilt University will discuss how the story has been adapted and changed for many reasons: to tell a story, to explain historical events, and--most frequently--to lend authority to the Greek text for the institutions that used it. See flyer for more.
