Chapter Summary

The enthusiasm aroused by the discoveries of the so-called European Genizah runs the risk of overshadowing the contents of the books or parts of books that have been fortuitously recovered, reproducing the pattern already developed in the richest of these treasure-troves on the Continent, that is to say the Italian one. The books, indeed, are the reason for all the excitement, and only a philological assessment can do justice to the importance of this long-neglected phenomenon: the recycling of Hebrew manuscripts in the bindings of books and registers in early modern Italy.
