The Language of the Aramaic Levi Document from the Cairo Geniza

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


The study builds on Beyer 1984, Norin 2013, and Milik (Drawnel) 2022, but incorporates the new fragment and refines the analysis, in particular against the backdrop of manuscript evidence for other non-canonical Jewish Aramaic texts from Second-Temple times (Megillat Taanit and short section of Mishna and Tosefta) and their transmission and also vis-à-vis Late Jewish Literary Aramaic (e.g., Megillat Antiochus, Targumim to Hagiographa). When seen in such a comparative perspective, the peculiarities of the language of the Aramaic Levi Document from the Cairo Geniza have possible implications for interpreting the transmission history of the text.
