Description

This volume is a continuation of the catalogue compiled by Colin F. Baker and Meira Polliack, Arabic and Judaeo-Arabic Manuscripts in the Cambridge Genizah Collections: Arabic Old Series (T-S Ar. 1a-54) published in 2001, and covers the manuscripts in the New Series. The volume describes almost 9,500 Arabic and Judaeo-Arabic fragments of the Cairo Genizah. The manuscripts include Bible translations and commentaries, philosophical, medical and historical texts, as well as business and private letters. They will be of interest to scholars from a broad range of fields including theology, history of the Middle East, Jewish studies, Middle Arabic, comparative Semitic studies, medicine, mathematics and geography. These manuscripts offer a rare glimpse into the everyday lives of the Jews living in Arab lands in the medieval period.
