Targumic Manuscripts in the Cambridge Genizah Collections


This volume, originally published by Cambridge University Press and now reprinted by Archaeopress, is an essential research tool for scholars studying the Jewish Aramaic translations of the Bible. It provides a description for every Targum manuscript in the Cambridge Genizah Collections, 1600 fragments in all, from every targumic genre and type, ranging in date from the earliest known manuscripts of the Palestinian Targum to late Yemenite versions of Onqelos, including a great many previously unidentified manuscripts. The late Michael Klein, who died in 2000, was the leading authority on the targumic manuscripts in the Genizah. Reviews of the first edition:‘[a] magnificent volume, absolutely indispensable for all who are interested in targumic literature’ (F. García Martínez, Journal for the Study of Judaism 24 (1993)) Originally published by C.U.P.
