More Description

Covering a wide range of subjects, this volume describes over 9,000 items, most of them written in the classical Genizah period (10th-13th centuries). They include translations and commentaries on the Bible, Mishnah and Talmud, Jewish legal works, homilies, philosophical treatises, medicine, astronomy, astrology, magic, historical works, folk-tales and legends, and rhymed prose and poetry. There are also commercial accounts, personal and business letters, and legal and administrative documents. The book complements a volume on the Arabic Old Series compiled by Colin Baker and Meira Polliack (Cambridge, 2001).
