Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a comprehensive bibliography on the Karaites in Eastern Europe. General works about the press, a list of films, modern studies of East European Karaites, Karaite personal names, tombstone inscriptions, and Karaite place names are provided here. Unlike the Rabbanites, Russian Karaites were exempted from obligatory army service in 1827; the Karaites of Austrian Galicia had already been exempted in 1790. In Russia they began serving in the regular Russian army in 1874 and in Austria they served in sanitary and other auxiliary units from 1869-1918. The chapter presents sources emphasizing Karaite religion in its East European manifestation. Research on the anthropology of the East European Karaites was pioneered by J. Talko- Hryncewicz as early as the end of the 19th century. Most anthropological studies on the Karaites carried out in the 1930s seem to be largely motivated by political and ideological concerns and, therefore, are suspect.
