Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a comprehensive bibliography of Karaites in Austria, England, France, Netherlands, Germany, Armenia, China, San Francisco Bay Area and many other parts of the world. The origins of the Karaites are usually traced to Anan ben David, in eighth-century Babylonia, but the movement only truly crystallized as such in the last couple of decades of the ninth century and has been part of the Jewish scene ever since, with major centers in Erets Israel, Modern Israel, Egypt, Byzantium, and Eastern Europe at different times in its history. Most contemporary East European Karaites and many East European scholars of Karaism subscribe to the theory of the Turkic origins of the Karaites and deny any connection with the Jewish communities in their environs. Most Western scholars, on the other hand, insist that the East European Karaites are Semitic in origin and originated in the Middle East.
