Rare And Important Big Complete Torah Scroll On Parchment, Germany, Ca 1600, Judaica.
Rare and important big complete Torah scroll on parchment, Germany, Ca 1600, Judaica.
Square Ashkenazi script (Bet Yosef).
The bibliographic sources for the structure of the regular letters are works of Yom Tov Lipmann Muhlhausen (XV sec.) and Samson ben Eliezer, author of the Baruch 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 16-17 century.
The structure of the letter is interesting because they aren’t strong defined as Ashkenazi and have tracks of Sephardic features.
It is an important indication that the scroll could be copied in a place influenced by Sephardic culture and rites or where have developed communities of both traditions.
Song of the sea
The column of the Song begins with the letter “He” as sentenced by some middle age Rabbis as Yizhaq of Corbeils (XIII°) or Mordekhay ben Hillel (XIII°).
In our scroll the letter is written bigger than the others.
The layout of the song is based on ancient Ashkenazi tradition, with the last line that doesn’t open with the word “Ha-yam”, but it doesn’t fit with the early layout of the Middle Age.
There is double space between the verses.
Besides the regular Tagin on the letters שעטנז ג"ץ , apprantly The scroll doesn’t have added tagin.
In addition figures many spirals and wrapped letters, in particular, “Peh”.
The textual characteristics of this scroll, including the script itself, the large columns, the application of "strange letters" place the present scroll squarely in the early modern age.
No Wawe’ amudim.
