The book presents for the first time a systematic comparison of Origen's and Jerome's attitudes toward the Biblical text in the Hebrew and Septuagint versions. And toward the canon of the Scriptures and traces the stages in Jerome's abandonment of the primacy of the Septuagint. One of the most important accomplishment of this work is Braverman's discussion of Jerome's commentary on the story of Susanna and the elders. Also valuable is his comparison of Jerome with earlier (especially Origen), contemporary, and later Church Fathers in their aggadic treatment of Daniel, thus presenting, in effect, a case study in the history of Christian exegesis, as compared with the Jewish exegesis of the Apocrypha, the Pseudepigrapha, Josephus, and rabbinic literature.
