Chapter Summary

This chapter is dedicated to Stefan Reif in gratitude for his enormous contributions to Genizah studies in general and to the authors own research in particular, it presents a basic description of the catalogue and its aims, a brief discussion of some of the problems involved in producing it, and a preliminary survey of the different types of MADA fragments in the Cambridge Genizah collections, and of the current state of their study. In order to highlight the different genres of magic-related texts in the Cairo Genizah, and their relative frequency the chapter presents a table listing the different types of texts and the different languages in which they are written.
