Play Video

The Septuagint is the ancient translation of the Old Testament from Hebrew into Greek. It was used by Jews and Christians, and it made the stories of the people of Israel accessible to an enormous readership. Some of the oldest surviving fragments of this hugely influential translation are now on display in Dublin!

The First Fragments exhibition runs in the Chester Beatty, Dublin, until 3 September 2023, and entrance is free. Further details:
