Chapter Summary

The Complutensian Polyglot Bible offers ten prologues; but this chapter provides special attention to the four Prologues. They are the following: ( 1) Cardinal Jimenez de Cisneros's Prologue to Pope Leo X;1 (2) the Prologue to the reader related to the Old Testament printed in four languages; (3) the way to find the primitive roots in Hebrew words: this is a chapter from Alphonso de Zamora's Hebrew Grammar; (4) the Prologue on the Hebrew-Aramaic Dictionary. If we compare the Aramaic texts of the Sephardic tradition either in the manuscripts or in the printed texts, we can see that their readings agree in many occasions and are different from other traditions, for instance from the Yemenite. That is why we speak of a Sephardic tradition of the Aramaic Bible. The chapter presents scheme of the Aramaic Sephardic Tradition as a possible reconstruction of the Aramaic Bible.

Keywords: Aramaic Bible; Cisneros's Prologue; Old Testament; Polyglot Bible; Sephardic tradition; Zamora
