The most accurate edition of the Leningrad Codex in print, the Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia (BHL) presents a thoroughly revised, reset, and redesigned edition of the Hebrew Bible meticulously prepared by renowned masoretic scholar Aron Dotan.
The BHL includes features suitable for research, classroom, and liturgical use. Scholars will find this a welcome edition of the Leningrad Codex, the oldest complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible, whose text and layout it precisely follows. A foreword and five appendices provide the researcher with important details and distinctions about the codex. In addition to being a scientific edition, it was originally commissioned in Israel to follow the necessary adaptations that qualify it for Jewish liturgical use, such as divisions into weekly portions and their subdivisions for synagogue reading. Students, too, will find here an ideal text for classroom use, with uncluttered format and printing that is matchless for its readability.
Includes appendixes, lay-flat binding, and other features essential for research, classroom, and liturgical use.
