James Aitken is a lecturer in the University of Cambridge Faculty of Divinity.
He specialises in second temple Judaism and in the Greek and Hebrew
languages, and more recently has focused upon the Septuagint, with particular
attention to its language and to the evidence oered by inscriptions and papyri as
a means of recovering the social history of the text. Recent publications include
No Stone Unturned: Greek Inscriptions and Septuagint Vocabulary (CSHB; Winona
Lake, IN: Eisenbrauns, 2014), The T&T Clark Companion to the Septuagint
(London: T&T Clark, 2015), and The Jewish-Greek Tradition in Antiquity and the
Byzantine Empire (ed. with James Carleton Paget; Cambridge: Cambridge
University Press, 2014).
