The two manuscripts below were included in a dedicated Hebrew section of Emilie Savage-Smith’s Descriptive Catalogue of Oriental Manuscripts at St John’s College, Oxford (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2005). As discussed elsewhere, the Oriental manuscripts collection is now known as the Middle Eastern and North African manuscripts collection, which has a linguistic range that includes Hebrew.
It should be noted, however, that the two Hebrew manuscripts in St John’s College Library were produced in a western context, and are also covered in our western medieval and western post-medieval catalogues.
MS 143 (Savage-Smith no. 35)
MS 143 is a bilingual Latin-Hebrew manuscript produced in the thirteenth century. It contains four Old Testament books: Joshua, Judges, Song of Songs, and Ecclesiastes.
