· exegetes ·

exegetes, pl. exegetai · Lit. “interpreter.” A group of officials who expound the proper procedure in situations which raise unusual questions of religious law. Their activity is attested in several cases, all of homicide; and in each case they are responding to an inquiry by an individual by an individual rather than as expert witnesses before a court. In one case they offer also to advise a litigant, implying that this was something more than their regular function of interpreting the law.

Greek: ἐξηγητής, ἐξηγηταί .
