Title: La diversité des sources du manuscrit de Leningrad B19a
Author(s): HIMBAZA, Innocent
Volume: 59 Date: 2017
The colophon found on folio 479r of the Leningrad Codex EBP. I B19a asserts that the text, the punctuation and the masorah of this manuscript were written by one scribe. However, a close examination of the text and of the masorah shows that they reflect a diversity of scribes and sources. Rather than explaining the text, there are cases where scribes who intervened in the manuscript just preserved the masoretic material they had at their disposal.
