Abstract

‭Every three years the International Organization for Targumic Studies (IOTS) organizes an international meeting in conjunction with the International Organization for Old Testament Studies (IOSOT). The seventh of these meetings, organized by the present editors, was held at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, 7–9 August, 2013. Selected papers from the meeting are published in Aramaic Studies , in two issues, of which the present fascicle is the first. The articles reflect the following current fields of research: manuscript studies and stemmatics, dialectology, syntax and semantics, translation studies, and the comparative study of targumic traditions.‬ ‭In recent years the study of targumic manuscripts received intensive attention.
