Chapter Summary

This chapter examines some previous work on Tosefta Targums (TTs). It focuses on the genre of piyyut in order to sketch a framework for some of the Aramaic poems that are also sometimes included in the field of TTs. The chapter provides description of corpus and characterisation of toseftan material. It also provides some conclusions by trying to answer the following questions: Can the name TT be maintained for all the traditions discussed here, or do we have to look for more appropriate designations for some of them? Are there linguistic similarities to be discovered across the toseftan material? and Are there other common tendencies to be discovered in the toseftan material? There are forty-six TTs on Samuel, of which three are on the same verse. The chapter describes the main sources of the TTs to Targum Samuel.

Keywords: Aramaic poems; piyyut; Samuel; Tosefta Targums (TTs)
