It is a distinct pleasure for me to post another Septuagint scholar interview in my ongoing series of posts (see numerous others here). Today we have the privilege of hearing from a very well established scholar in the discipline, Dr. Raija Sollamo, who is professor emerita of Biblical Languages in the Faculty of Theology at the University of Helsinki.
Aside from her work in Septuagint scholarship, Dr. Sollamo also has the distinct privilege of having been the first female professor in the field of theology in Finland and was elected the 1994 Woman of the Year by the Finnish business and Professional Women Association. As you will see in her interview below, Dr. Sollamo has also played a significant role in carrying on and expanding study of the syntax of the Septuagint in Finland.
