Translating the Levitical sacrifices

Publisher: SIL Journal of Translation, 2007
Language: Senoufo, Supyire

Abstract: In this article, I begin with section 1 by presenting the five main sacrifices found in the first seven chapters of Leviticus, including their relations to the requirement for Israel to be holy. In section 2, I describe the functions of the levitical sacrifices, and in section 3, I compare these with the functions of the multifarious sacrifices carried out by the Supyire people in southern Mali.
