5 HEXAPLARIC MATERIALS IN ECCLESIASTES AND THE RÔLE OF THE SYRO-HEXAPLA* Peter J. Gentry The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY I first encountered the massive tomes of Field’s edition of the Hexapla when I was studying at a seminary in the USA. Just learning how to read this work was, in itself, a major task and no one at the seminary seemed to know much about it. As I cast about for help, I recalled, somewhat vaguely, that Professor Albert Pietersma, my first instructor of Hellenistic Greek at the University of Toronto, had somehow been connected with such things and so I wrote him a letter. Thus began a lifelong passion, not only for the Septuagint, but also for hexaplaric matters and materials. In 1997 I was assigned the task, begun by Professor Ziegler, of producing a critical edition of the earliest Greek Version of Ecclesiastes for the G6ttingen Septuaginta Series. The hexaplaric materials must be collected for the Second Apparatus of the C6ttingen Edition and so study of Origen’s Hexapla continues. First the sources for the hexaplaric materials had to be identified. The main sources in Greek are marginal notes in MSS 159, 161, 248, 252,
