NT Texts in the Cairo Genizah: Bibliographical References

October 8, 2014

I’ve now got some further bibliographical references relating to my posting yesterday about NT manuscripts among the material from the Cairo Genizah.

(With thanks to Bill Yarchin for these initial ones):

Michael Sokoloff & Joseph Yahalom, “Christian Palimpsests from the Cairo Genizah,” Revue de l’histoire des textes 8 (1978): 109-32.

Natalie Tchernetska, “Greek-Oriental Palimpsests in Cambridge:  Problems and Prospects,” in Literacy, Education and Manuscript Transmission in Byzanitum and Beyond, eds. C. Holmes & J. Waring (Leiden:  Brill, 2002), 243-56.

Nicholas de Lange, “Jewish Transmission of Greek Bible Versions,” in XIII Congress of the Interenational Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies, Ljubljana, 2007, ed. Melvin K. H. Peters (Atlanta:  Society of Biblical Liteature, 2007), 109-17.


In addition, I offer the following online resources on various matters:

Friedrich Niessen, “New Testament Translations from the Cairo Genizah,” surveying the various translations evidenced in the Genizah fragments:  here.

A bibliography of publications on the Cairo Genizah listed by the Cambridge University Library:  here.

Stefan Reif reporting on the discovery of some 350 manuscripts from the Cairo Genizah in Geneva in 2006:  here.
