Book Description:

This catalogue provides a descriptive entry for the 1600 fragments in the Cambridge Genizah Collections. It will be an essential research tool for scholars studying early manuscriptal evidence of targumic literature especially for the fields of Semitic languages, targumic studies, and the history of rabbinic Bible translation.

Review:

"Klein's expertly prepared volume provides a listing and very full description for the almost 1,600 targum fragments housed in the Cambridge Genizah Collections. In addition to finding exemplars of all known texts and targum forms, Klein succeeded in discovering new genres and types. Several indexes, including one to canoniccla references, aid the researcher in gaining access to this mass of material. In keeping with other catalogues in this series, Klein's work, which includes two dozen well-chosen plates, is beautifully produced and presented. This volume, along with relevant microfilms and other aids, indeed constitutes the next best thing to being there for the many scholars with an interest in these Genizah manuscripts." Leonard J. Greenspoon, Religious Studies Review

"In identifying and describing all the targumic material among the 140,000 manuscripts of the Cambridge Genizah Collections, Klein has performed a yeoman's labor. His preparatory work will greatly aid those who consult Targumic Manuscripts in the Cambridge Genizah Collections before examining the manuscripts themselves or the microfilm versions of them. It will also prevent oversight of targumic manuscripts inadvertently catalogued in ways that obscure their contents. For these reasons, this book is an invaluable tool for scholars interested in targumic studies. As such, it will help realize the great potential of the Geniza targumic manuscripts for elucidating early Jewish biblical translation and interpretation." Esther M. Menn, Journal of Near Eastern Studies

Menn, Journal of Near Eastern Studies
