A Hand-List of Rabbinic Manuscripts in the Cambridge Genizah Collections: Volume 1: Taylor-Schechter New Series
Cambridge University Press, Dec 10, 1998 - Reference - 352 pages
This volume contains descriptions - including, in many cases, precise identifications - of approximately 6,000 manuscript fragments from the Taylor-Schechter New Series originating in the world-famous Genizah of Cairo, and now at Cambridge University Library. The emphasis is on classical and medieval rabbinic literature, but many fragments belonging to other genres, which were placed in boxes dedicated to Talmudic and rabbinic literature, are also described. It is anticipated that the volume will be of considerable assistance to researchers in a variety of disciplines, by facilitating access to material of various sorts and substantially reducing the amount of time which must be devoted to preliminary searches.
