The American philologist David Simon Blondheim (1884–1934) was endowed with
vast Hebraic learning. In this book, first published in 1925, he makes
connections between European Jewish speech in antiquity, the Old Latin
versions of the Bible, and medieval Romance languages. He examines how
Greek-speaking Jews transmitted their linguistic traditions both orally and in
writing until the Middle Ages. Establishing that they used the Hebrew and
Greek Bibles side by side and translated the Greek version into Old Latin,
Blondheim concludes that their traditional translations extensively influenced
the Vulgate, the English Bible, and the Romance languages. In 1926, Blondheim
was the first American to be awarded the Volney Prize from the French Académie
des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres for this groundbreaking scholarly
achievement. It will make invaluable reading for students of the Bible and the
Romance languages.
