What possible basis could there be for a translation, i.e. the
Septuagint, to be regarded as the authoritative text?

Dear Philip,

No. In several eastern European languages the Septuagint is used as the
textual base. This is due to the fact that the Orthodox churches in
those areas regard it as the authoritative text.

Best wishes,

Reinier de Blois
