The Septuagint (or "LXX", or "Greek Old Testament") is a translation of the Hebrew Old Testament and certain Apocrypha, which was sponsored according to tradition in the late 3rd century BC by Ptolemy II Philadelphus, the king of Ptolemaic Egypt (283 BC to 246 BC). The Greek translation was originally created for use by the Alexandrian Jews who were fluent in Koine Greek, but not in Hebrew. Thus the Septuagint is sometimes called the "Apostle's Bible" and the one that Jesus and his disciples would have had access to. It is quoted in the New Testament by writers such as the Apostle Paul, and remained the Scripture of use by the Apostolic Fathers. The translation of the Septuagint into English by Sir Lancelot C. L. Brenton was first published in 1851 and was based primarily upon the Codex Vaticanus, one of the oldest extant manuscripts of the Greek Bible. It remains the standard of use by many scholars and students of Scripture and history. Contained in this volume (The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts Volume III): The English Translation of the Greek Septuagint Bible, Including the Apocrypha.

The Bible, as we hold it today, is esteemed by many religious institutions and especially Conservative Christians to be the inspired, inerrant Word of God. This doctrinal position affirms that the Bible is unlike all other books or collections of works in that it is free of error due to having been “given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Tim. 3:16, 17). While no other text can claim this same unique authority, Apocryphal and Pseudepigraphal literature such as contained in this volume of The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts (Volume One—The Apocrypha: Includes the Books of Enoch, Jasher, and Jubilees), provides literature that often precedes or follows the chronology of biblical texts, which frequently are used or assigned as supplemental works within academic settings to help students and scholars discover or better understand cultural and historical context within the Word of God. Whether or not the information contained in the apocryphal literature is entirely precise—as is the canon of Scripture—these ancient texts provide commentators’ valuable insight into what many ancient Jews and early Christians believed when, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets” (Heb. 1:1). The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts is therefore intended to be a supplemental resource for assisting serious researchers and students in the study of the Bible and Bible times. Contained in this volume: The Book of Enoch, The Book of Jasher, The Book of Jubilees, 1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobias, Judith, Wisdom, Sirach, Baruch, Susanna, Prayer of Azariah, Prayer of Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon, and Laodiceans.

While no other text can claim this same unique authority, the Apostolic Fathers included in this volume (also called the Ante-Nicene Fathers), covers the Early Christian writings from the beginning of Christianity until the promulgation of the Nicene Creed at the First Council of Nicaea, which was convened in Bithynia by the Roman Emperor Constantine I in AD 325. As such, writings contained in this volume of The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts (Volume Two: The Apostolic Fathers: Includes Clement, Anthenagorus, Mathetes, Polycarp, Ignatius, Barnabas, Papias, Justin Martyr, and Irenaeus), provides literature that follows the chronology of New Testament texts, which frequently are used or assigned as supplemental works within academic settings to help students and scholars discover or better understand cultural and historical context of the early Christian Church. These ancient texts provide commentators valuable insight into what many ancient Jews and early Christians believed when, "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets" (Heb. 1:1).

While no other text can claim this same unique authority, these select works by key preachers of the Great Awakenings (the evangelical and revitalization movements that swept Protestant Europe and British America, especially the American colonies during the 1730s through the 1800s) reflect the theology and actions of those devout churchmen whose powerful preaching and teaching created a deep sense of conviction regarding morality and the need for personal revelation and salvation by no other than Jesus Christ.

Archaeologists do not discover the past but take the fragmentary remains which they recover and make something of them. Archaeology is a process of detection and supposition; this is what makes it so fascinating. However, the interpretations of archaeologists differ and change over time. They depend upon the amount of evidence available, the ideas and preconceptions of the archaeologist and their interests and aims. Michael Shanks's enlivening work is a guide to the discipline of classical archaeology and its objects. It assesses archaeology as a means of reconstructing ancient Greek society using the latest approaches of social archaeology. In addition, The Classical Archaeology of Greece outlines the history of the discipline and discusses why Classical Greece continues to fascinate us and why it has had such an impact on European civilization and identity.

Mit der Gründung des Corpus der antiken Ärzte an der Königlich Preußischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin am Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts wurde die Erforschung der antiken Medizin zu einem integrierenden Bestandteil der Klassischen Philologie in Deutschland. Das Corpus Medicorum Graecorum, das eine wissenschaftsgeschichtliche Brückenfunktion zwischen Natur- und Geisteswissenschaften erfüllt, war von Anfang an auf internationale Kooperation ausgerichtet und ist bis heute weltweit das wissenschaftlich maßgebende Unternehmen für die Edition antiker medizinischer Texte. In den letzten Jahrzehnten ist, vor allem im europäischen Ausland und in den USA, das Interesse an der antiken Medizin in allen ihren Facetten stark gewachsen. Die am 14. und 15. Mai 2004 von der Berlin-Brandenburgischen Akademie der Wissenschaften veranstaltete und der DFG finanzierte internationale Fachkonferenz verfolgte das Ziel, die Editionsphilologie auf diesem Gebiet zu stimulieren, auf dem sich philologische Arbeit mit medizinisch-naturwissenschaftlichen Fragestellungen verbindet. Ausgewiesene Spezialisten nahmen als Referenten an der Konferenz teil, die dem Arbeitsstellenleiter des CMG, Dr. sc. Diethard Nickel, anlässlich seines 65. Geburtstages gewidmet war.
