The dissertation provides a critical edition of the hexaplaric fragments for the first twenty-one chapters of the book of Job, recording the diacritical marks and the attributions Aquila (α'), Symmachus (σ'), and Theodotion ([straight theta]') which accompany them, including hexaplaric references traditionally included among hexaplaric materials. The materials include all witnesses, references, and citations, such as found in the Syro-hexapla, Latin and other non-Greek witnesses, and patristic references. The work updates the Hexapla of Frederick Field and the hexaplaric apparatus of the Göttingen edition, Iob , (J. Ziegler, editor) by incorporating new research, newly available manuscripts, and new critical editions. Chapter 1 provides an introduction and methodological overview. Chapter 2 is a description of sources used in the critical edition. Chapter 3 provides the main body of the critical edition. Chapter 4 cites omitted marginalia, various marginal notes excluded from the critical edition. These hold potential for future hexaplaric research, for identification of Lucianic variants, and for patristic studies. Chapter 5 gives a preliminary summary and analysis of the findings.
