Chapter Summary

The present resurgence of targumic studies has been enhanced, to no small degree, by the discovery and current publication of the complete Palestinian Targum, as preserved in Codex Neofiti I. The identification of MS Neofiti I, by A. Díez-Macho in 1956, as a copy of the complete Palestinian Targum ranks among the most important discoveries in modern targumic research. Neofiti I is a complicated MS. The text proper (N), written in large square Hebrew script, is profusely annotated by ten different scribal hands. A common practice among the scribes of N is to correct errors, especially misspellings, that were noticed during the writing of the text. In most cases the scribes left the errors intact, and merely added the correction immediately following. Most of these errors have been excised from the text by the editor, without any notation at all.

Keywords: A. Díez-Macho; MS Neofiti I; Palestinian Targum
