Scholarly Editions[edit]

Does anybody know anything about scholarly editions, either religious or secular? I know there are a few commentaries on targum but are there any critical editions comparing various targumim? Avraham (talk) 22:08, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Targum Ketuvim[edit]

"An official targum was in fact unnecessary for Ketuvim because its books played no fixed liturgical role."

  • I think that psalms, the five megilot, and the other non-historical books, definately play a "fixed liturgical role." —Preceding unsigned comment added by Phil burnstein (talkcontribs) 01:05, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Dates[edit]

Some mention of which centuries these targumim were composed in should be included in the intro, and indeed, in the body. Rwflammang (talk) 00:28, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
