* [ Septuagint Institute] (Trinity Western University, Canada). In 2005 the Septuagint Studies department moved from the University of Toronto to TWU, forming the new Septuagint Institute (SI). The SI complements TWU's already established Dead Sea Scrolls Institute (DSSI), founded in 1995, and together they form North America's new hub of Septuagint research.
* [ Septuaginta-Unternehmens Institute] in Gottingen, Germany. The Septuaginta-Unternehmen is a special research institute that was founded in 1908 in Göttingen under the auspices of the Göttingen Academy of Sciences. Its purpose was to conduct sound scientific investigation into the Septuagint and to trace the history of evolution of the Septuagint text, on the basis of the mass of manuscript data, and ultimately to establish a text which could be claimed to be for all intents and purposes identical with the Septuagint in its pristine form, a proto-Septuagint.([ 1]) The institute made Göttingen the nerve centre of Septuagint studies. The first director of the Institute, '''[ Alfred Rahlfs]''', published ''Septuaginta, 2 volume edition in 1935'' (Septuagint in Greek). Rahlf's semi-critical edition of the Septuagint for the book of Genesis rests on a foundation of some 140 manuscripts (nine pre-dating the fourth century CE), ten daughter-versions, plus biblical citations in Greek and Latin literature. It has been supplanted by the fully critical Göttingen ''Göttingen SeptuagintSeptuaginta Vetus Testamentum Graecum'', in 23 volumes covering approximately two-thirds of the LXX text, along with a supplementary series.
* [ The HEXAPLA Institute]. Its purpose is to publish a new critical edition of the fragments of Origen's [[Hexapla]], focusing on the later development of Septuagint tradition.
* [ Centre for Septuagint Studies and Textual Criticism]. Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium.
