Chapter Summary

The text of Sefer Ḥakhmoni (SḤ) was transmitted in thirty-two manuscripts, all of which were scrutinised for the redaction of the critical text, the only exception being ms. The first two fragments out of the three making up ms. G (Oxford - Bodleian Library - ms. Heb.e.26 and Cambridge - University Library - ms. T.-S.K. 21.43), as well as manuscripts C, H, L, Lo, O, Ox, Oxo, Oxon and T, have been examined in the original, while the remainder (mss. E, F, J, Jt, M, Mo, Ms, Mu, Pg, P, Pr, Q, U, V, W, Z) in microfilm, by high-quality scanned copies (N and K), and by black and white photos (Ps, Pa and Par). A fragment from the Cairo Genizah belonging to G was published by Scheiber (idem, "A New Passage") in 1952. The text of this manuscript had been studied according to a transcription provided by Scheiber in his article.
