Book review / Open Access
Nicholas de Lange's Greek Jewish Texts from the Cairo Genizah (1996) is a work of crucial importance for the history of biblical exegesis. Of the 305 pages of texts published here, 225 are from biblical commentaries. At least some of these commentaries-including a commentary to Ezekiel and Minor Prophets composed by a Jew named Reuel which takes up almost 130 pages by itself-seem to be the work of Rabbanites living in the Byzantine Empire before Rashi. For most scholars, this is the first opportunity they have had to study this material or even to learn of its existence.
