Jewish biblical exegesis from Islamic lands : the medieval period
SBL Press 2019EISBN 9780884144045
"Since the 1990s, we have witnessed a renewed interest in medieval biblical exegesis written in the Arabic language by Jews from Islamic Lands. This is especially evident in a large number of recent editions and detailed studies of their Bible translations and commentaries, originally written in this language, also known as Judeo-Arabic. This volume contains articles that afford a glimpse and a taste of this hitherto neglected branch of Medieval Bible commentary in a way that will be accessible to known specialists in Hebrew and Arabic"-- Provided by publisher.
