Abstract

MIDRASHIC PARALLELS TO TARGUMIC TRADITIONS BY AVIGDOR SHINAN The Hebrew University Jerusalem The fragmentary nature of rabbinic literature, its dispersion, non- systematic arrangement, massive breadth, and especially the presence of multiple parallels within its scope - all these features have traditionally necessitated the preparation of indices, lists, and reference works which help the scholar who is working with one text to find parallels in others, without which there could be no disciplined inquiry, be it philological, theological, literary, or historical. Locating the parallels and comparing them-this is in itself a field of work which requires great learning- contribute to the examination of the language, the fixing of the text itself, and the diachronic description of the text traditions. Therefore, any serious critical edition of a rabbinic text features a list of parallels, usually in a separate column, the more complete the better. In this regard the entire field of the so-called "Palestinian" targums to the Bible 1) remains neglected and forlorn, and this despite the fact that the targums are marked by an abundance of material which bursts the scope of the translated verse itself. Aside from the entirely incomplete and random lists that GINSBURGER includes in his
