About this Item

Original Stiff Wraps. 8vo. 121 pages. 24 cm. First edition. In Judeo-Arabic in Hebrew characters. Edited from the unique manuscripts in the State Public Library in Leningrad by Lawrence Marwick. Solomon ben Jeroham was a "Karaite exegete and controversialist; flourished at Jerusalem between 940 and 960. He was considered one of the greatest authorities among the Karaites, by whom he is called 'the Wise' ('ha-Hakam') His commentary on the Psalms breathes a deep hatred of all foreign nations; and he repeatedly denounces the study of secular subjects. He would not allow the Karaites to study even foreign languages, still less philosophical works. The theories of Euclid and Ptolemy were, in his opinion, contrary to the teachings of the Law. " - 1906 JE. The editor, Lawrence Marwick, was head of the Hebraic section of the Library of Congress for thirty years, and served for 17 years as adjunct professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies at Dropsie College for Hebrew and Cognate Learning in Philadelphia and taught courses in Semitic languages and Israeli literature at New York University.
