Abstract

MS Istanbul, Carullah 1279, is a huge codex, comprising more than 400 folios. The late Franz Rosenthal aptly described it as a one-volume library. Copied around 1480 by a Yemeni Muslim, Muhammad b. Hasan al-Nihmi, it contains large selection of philosophical texts, including Jewish texts, some of them unique, as well as full copy of Maimonides' Dalalat al-Ha'irin (Guide of the Perplexed), transcribed into Arabic letters. The margins of the Guide are filled with tightly written comments by al-Nihmi. With the help of high quality digital images, we have begun to work towards their publication. In the article published here, we offer a selection of his more critical notes, transcribed, translated into Hebrew, and annotated. Al-Nihmi accuses Maimonides of trying to justify pre-conceived religious doctrines. For his part, al-Nihmi openly sides with the view that the world is uncreated
