Please help someone with absolutely no background in source criticism:  what
is the definition of "vorlage."  I only know the term in the context of
skiing, and can't cipher how the metaphor might apply to textual

In source criticism Vorlage refers to the text which underlies a translation. 
 Sometimes differences in the LXX and the MT are extremely disparate and are 
not simply due to a differing understanding of the SAME underlying text 
(assuming that it's simply not a matter of poor translation).  In this case 
there is a presumed Hebrew text which underlies the LXX which differs from 
the received MT.  Some evidence of this has been found in the DSS.
