Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the study of Hebrew manuscripts. Medieval and early modern book binders recycled parchment from medieval manuscripts, including those with Hebrew language contents. The systematic study of the fragments of Hebrew manuscripts is an essential contribution for the study of the extent and distribution of reading and writing skills in the West. The systematic analysis of the corpora of the Hebrew binding fragments in Europe has led to recognition that the seemingly straightforward category, "Bible fragment", may refer to remnants of a variety of texts, including books specifically dedicated to the weekly haftarah.

Keywords: Bible fragment; book binders; haftarah; Hebrew manuscripts; medieval manuscripts
