The Pentateuch: An Introduction to the First Five Books of the Bible (The Anchor Yale Bible Reference Library)
"The Pentateuch" (its Greek name, but also known as the Torah by the Hebrews) consists of the first five books of the Bible: "Genesis", "Exodus", "Leviticus", "Numbers", and "Deuteronomy". From Adam and Eve in the Garden, to Noah's Ark, to Moses' parting of the Red Sea, to its conclusion with the death of Moses, the "Pentateuch" contains some of the most important and memorable stories in Western civilization. In this richly detailed work, which has become a standard in the field, renowned biblical scholar Joseph Blenkinsopp unravels (as Harold Bloom did in "The Book of J") the radical scholarly opinions on just where these ancient and powerful stories come from, how they were formed, and what significance they have today. In the classroom, when professors cover these books of Moses, they turn to Dr. Blenkinsopp's classic for reliable, accessible discussions of all the important details.
BIBLE LEAF Ref 280 recto
The leaf is from a Bible that was produced in Paris, France c.1280-1290.
The original text of the leaf begins in Joshua, chapter 24, verse 3 and ends at I Judges, chapter 1, verse 29, but see the heading “CONDITION” for changes to this.
The size of the leaf is 298mm x 190mm (11 7/10ins. x 7 1/2ins.).
This is a leaf from the Bible that was Sotheby’s Western Manuscripts and Miniatures Sale, 5th. December 1989, Lot 79, described as “This is the corpus of a very fine folio-sizes thirteenth-century Bible of very high quality and one-time richness, and now, even though despoiled of much of its art, still an important and impressive book. The script, the layout, the vellum and the minor decoration are all of excellent type. The remaining miniatures belong within the Sainte-Chapelle group of Parisian illuminators, as defined by Branner, and perhaps more specifically within the ‘Henry VIII’ sub-group.”
The leaf has been mutilated and then patched up to create a better impression. On the verso, the text is the opening of the First Book of Judges. This would have had a large historiated initial at least seven lines in height and at lease half the width of the column. In Victorian times collectors took great delight in cutting up manuscripts to put nice, decorative initials and borders into scrapbooks. This is what has happened here. The historiated initial has been removed together with the part of the border that was next to it and the space has been filled with fragments from elsewhere. Whilst the patch that fills the space has no small initials touched with red, it is probably taken from another leaf from the same Bible. On the recto here is part of II Machabees, chapter 15, verses 31 to 36. On the verso is part of the Prologue to Saint Matthew’s Gospel. The replacement part of the border seems to be part of the fragment of replacement text.
There is a vertical cut, 56mm from the outside edge and extending 185mm down the leaf. Unless it was originally intended to cut out the border, there seems to be no purpose in this.
The leaf has also been subject to severe cropping along the inside edge.
GENERAL COMMENTS: -
Not withstanding the condition problems that it has, this leaf, which is from a large format Bible of great beauty, still retains a great deal of its charm and obvious quality. The decoration at the top and bottom of the border is superb.
