Rare Important Antique Complete Torah Scroll Of Ashkenazi Tradition On Parchment, Germany, Ca 1500.
A rare and important antique complete Torah scroll of Ashkenazi tradition on parchment, Germany, Ca 1500. Square Ashkenazi script (Ari zal). The bibliographic sources for the structure of the regular letters are the works of Yom Tov Lipmann Muhlhausen (XV sec.) and Samson ben Eliezer, author of the Barukh she-Amar (XIV) where are described the forms of square Ashkenazi letters. These indications were transferred also in best known works of Yosef Caro Bet Yosef. Other Ashkenazi halakhists, such as Jacob Moelin (Maharil) and Jacob Landau (Sefer ha-Agur), Solomon Luria (Maharshal), and Elijah Shapira would incorporate Samson's teachings into their own works, the Halakhic mainstays of Ashkenazi Jewry. The structure of the "Alef" and other letters seems to be similar to that of the 16th century. The layout of the Song of the Sea is based on one of the ancient Ashkenazi traditions, with the last line full scripted that doesn’t open with the word “ha-yam”. There are small double space between the verses. Besides the regular tagin on the lettersשעטנז ג"ץ and on the letters בדק חי"ה The scroll has numerous letters with added tagin. In addition figures many strange and unusual letters, spirals and wrapped. The textual characteristics of this scroll, including the script itself, application of "strange letters" and Kabbalistic crowns, place the present scroll squarely between the modern and the end of medieval traditions of Torah Scroll creation, although the textual layout of the songs and section divisions does fit much more with the modern tradition than the previous period. No Wawe’ amudim. Very good condition, some letters are erased but whereas the antiquity of the scroll it is well preserved. Petuchot and setumot according to Rambam. Ashkenazi style wooden rollers of brown wood turned on tips and handles.The radiocarbon analysis, made on this scroll, testifies a reasonable adherence of the obtained results to the supposed date based on codicological and palaeographic available elements.
