Masorah of Elijah ha-Naqdan : An Edition of Ashkenazic Micrographical Notes (Hardcover) (Elodie Attia)
about this item
This volume is the first attempt to critically edit the textual contents of Masoretic notes written in micrographical designs. Within this pioneer work, Élodie Attia focuses on the Masorah of a 13th-century Northern French scribe, Elijah ben Berechiah ha-Naqdan (alive in 1233–1239), and provides new evidence about the transmission of Biblical and Masoretic knowledge in Western Europe and in Ashkenaz.
