Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the genesis of the Hebraeische Übersetzungen, a work that Steinschneider contemplated writing for many years, but that, over time, outgrew its initial conception. Steinschneider begins the comment by emphasizing the significance of the Hebrew translations for historians of Arabic and Scholastic philosophy, yet ends with noting their importance for historians of Jewish culture. In 1870, Steinschneider published in the library-science journal Serapeum an article on translators from Arabic sources in the Christian West, the first of a promised series of articles. The article was said to be a by-product of his twenty-five years of research on medieval Jewish translators, their sources and their subsequent influence. According to Steinschneider's own official account of the genesis of Hebraeische Übersetzungen cited above, the material for the publication lay undigested as late as 1880 because no prospect of publication was acting as an incentive..
