Abstract:

The American philologist David Simon Blondheim (1884–1934) was endowed withvast Hebraic learning. In this book, first published in 1925, he makesconnections between European Jewish speech in antiquity, the Old Latinversions of the Bible, and medieval Romance languages. He examines howGreek-speaking Jews transmitted their linguistic traditions both orally and inwriting until the Middle Ages. Establishing that they used the Hebrew andGreek Bibles side by side and translated the Greek version into Old Latin,Blondheim concludes that their traditional translations extensively influencedthe Vulgate, the English Bible, and the Romance languages. In 1926, Blondheimwas the first American to be awarded the Volney Prize from the French Académiedes Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres for this groundbreaking scholarlyachievement. It will make invaluable reading for students of the Bible and theRomance languages.
