Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses quotations of targumic passages in the Palestinian Targums, in the Tosefta Targums, in Targum Esther Sheni and Targum Canticles, in magical texts, in Talmudim and Midrashim, in order to shed some new light on the early history of targumic practice. Within this context the chapter focuses on the long debated questions as to whether there ever existed a complete Palestinian Targum to the Prophets. The chapter offers some criticism on the valuable work of Goshen-Gottstein, which fails to define more precisely what is meant by a quotation. Following the suggestions of Hughes, the chapter defines the difference between explicit or direct quotation on the one hand and indirect quotation or allusion on the other.

Keywords: Midrashim; Palestinian Targums; Talmudim; Targum Canticles; Targum Esther Sheni; Targumic Passages; Tosefta Targums
