Chapter Summary

Most of the fragments uncovered in the "European Genizah" come from works which were very popular in central Europe at the end of the Middle Ages. These fragments include Scripture and its commentaries, prayer books, the Talmud and its commentaries, and the popular legal codes. Most of these works were already available to us both in printed editions and in tens of complete manuscripts. The European Genizah has preserved remnants of a considerable number of books which had been entirely lost to us, and which are not avail- able to us in any complete manuscript. Some of these books were already known to us by way of the references made to them by various medieval scholars, whereas others were altogether unknown before they were uncovered in the European Genizah. This chapter discusses two new biblical commentaries, one of which was previously known, while the other is completely new.

Keywords: biblical commentaries; European Genizah; Talmud
