Septuagint Symposium

Septuagint Symposium

Dr John Lee recently attended a conference in Helsinki, Finland (1–4 June, 2017), entitled 'Soisalon-Soininen Symposium on the Septuagint.'

This was arranged to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the birth of Ilmari Soisalon-Soininen, the founding father of the 'Helsinki school' of Septuagint studies and highly esteemed by his successors and pupils in Finland, as well as by Septuagint scholars generally. The symposium brought together a group of leading scholars in the field, from both Finland and other places in Europe.

Dr Lee was one of the invited keynote speakers and gave a paper entitled 'Back to the Question of Greek Idiom.'
