6355Re: [hugoye-list] Jacob of Edessa's Commentary on Genesis?
- Apr 30, 2014I am wondering whether the reference is to the chunks of Jacob of Edessa commenting on Genesis (and on other books) that have been incorporated into the Catena Severi (Vat. sir. 103), a phenomenon that has been known about for some time. Dirk Kruisheer and Bas Romeny have worked on the Catena, and the relationship of Jacob’s scholia in other MSS to the Jacob material in the Catena Severi.But if Prof. Amar is referring to a discrete commentary of Jacob on Genesis that he has just discovered, that would indeed be exciting, though I suspect that it would overlap quite a lot with the bits and pieces of Jacob on Genesis that we already possess (e.g. scholia, Hexaemeron).On 30 Apr 2014, at 09:39, James R.

Dear Hugoye,The following rather poorly headlined article about the work of Joseph Amar on the Vatican Library catalogues has an interesting bit at the end:The University of St Andrews is a charity registered in Scotland : No SC013532
