Manuscript Fragments of Early Tosafot in Perpignan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Fragments of a Hebrew manuscript in thirteenth-century Sephardic script were recently discovered in the binding of a fourteenth-century notarial manual in Perpignan. These fragments are identified here as originating in a copy of Tosafot redacted by a disciple of Isaac ben Samuel of Dampierre. It is suggested that the redactor was Samson ben Abraham of Sens. This find is doubly significant-for the study of Tosafot, and for the intellectual history of medieval Perpignan Jewry.
