The Transmission of Targum Jonathan in the West Initial Results from the Mixed Western Textual Group

The Transmission of Targum Jonathan in the West Initial Results from the Mixed Western Textual Group Stemmatological analysis of the text of Targum Samuel reveals six major text families. This paper examines seven related manuscripts belonging to one of these families, which I call the Mixed Western group. I identify and describe two tendencies that appear in the texts of these manuscripts: (1) the amplification of the text by the introduction of conventional readings from elsewhere in the Targum; and, (2) the revision of the text to bring it into closer conformity to the underlying Hebrew text. I conclude with some observations concerning the transmission of the Targum in the West. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aramaic Studies Brill

Abstract

Stemmatological analysis of the text of Targum Samuel reveals six major text families. This paper examines seven related manuscripts belonging to one of these families, which I call the Mixed Western group. I identify and describe two tendencies that appear in the texts of these manuscripts: (1) the amplification of the text by the introduction of conventional readings from elsewhere in the Targum; and, (2) the revision of the text to bring it into closer conformity to the underlying Hebrew text. I conclude with some observations concerning the transmission of the Targum in the West.
