Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...[a] very welcome and enormously valuable study... Superb prints and illustrations make this an especially attractive volume, as well as a superb introduction...a richly rewarding read." Religious Studies Review

"Sirat...is fully qualified to present to the scholarly community, students, and the general public something quite rare in Jewish Studies, a comprehensive, readable, and useful text that explores all facets of the world of medieval Hebrew manuscripts. From the mundane to the sublime, there is something for everyone—Hebraist and non-Hebraist alike—in these well-illustrated pages. In short we have an elegantly produced and superb introduction to the study of Hebrew manuscripts, their scribes, and their contents that will enlighten students and scholars alike... It is a book written by a master of the material with a sensitive eye and a sharp reed. It is a tribute to the book making craft and Cambridge University Press should be praised for its aesthetic production." H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online

"Hebrew manuscripts are a window into Jewish intellectual, religious and everyday life in the Middle Ages, Hebrew Manuscripts of the Middle Ages...by Colette Sirat, is the last word on this topic." Canadian Jewish News
