Abstract

This paper presents the initial results of a research project whose aim is to produce the first critical edition of the philosophical part of Rabbi Levi ben Gershom's Wars of the Lord. The paper has two sections. The first section discusses the investigation that led to selection of the exemplars to use in creating a critical edition of the Introduction and Treatises 1–4. This investigation attempted to locate all extant manuscript exemplars of the philosophical part of the Wars, resolve the question of multiple versions of these sections in the extant exemplars, identify families of exemplars, and, finally, choose the exemplars for the edition. The conclusions reached in each phase are elaborated; inter alia, a new list is provided of the extant manuscript exemplars of the philosophical part. The second section of the paper presents an eclectic edition of the Introduction, based on the selected exemplars.
