Hebrew Manuscripts : Sefer ha-Peli'ah with notes, indices and a dictionary


Hebrew Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Seventeenth-century Hebrew codex containing the Kabbalistic text Sefer ha-Peli'ah ("Book of Wonder"). Folios <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(3);return false;'>ia-iib</a> contain references to the Sefer ha-Kanah. Many Kabbalists used Sefer ha-Kanah to refer to both the Sefer ha-Peli'ah and the Sefer ha-Kanah. The texts were apparently written by the same anonymous Kabbalist toward the end of the fourteenth century or the beginning of the fifteenth. In this manuscript numerous marginal notes accompany Sefer ha-Peli'ah. The three indices that follow the text were put together in relation to this particular manuscript by the seventeenth-century rabbi Samuel Garmizan. Most likely, therefore, Samuel Garmizan was the copyist of this manuscript. Another indication is that the last four smaller leaves of the codex contain Sefer shittufe shemot by the same Samuel. That text is a short dictionary with homonyms to aid preachers. The front and back paste-downs include two conjoined leaves of Maimonides' Book of commandments.</p>
