Subject: Range of OT TC Methodologies?

Dear Listees,

I am trying to do a PhD Thesis in OT (Old Testament) TC (Textual Criticism), 
specifically on the differences between selected texts of the LXX & MT.

Ideally, I would like to have a range of methodologies, select one, and then 
justify the selection of the methodology I have chosen.

Unfortunately, it appears to me that there are not many types of OT TC, since 
the basic concept is to collate the LXX/MT differences and then to evaluate them 
using the 'canons' of OT TC as a guideline and the theory of Paul de Lagarde as 
a part of the theoretical framework.

I really would value your thoughts on the matter please.

Many thanks,

Philip Engmann,
PhD cand.
