Ussher's Sixth Copy of the Samaritan Pentateuch

Ussher's Sixth Copy of the Samaritan Pentateuch SHORT NOTES USSHER'S SIXTH COPY OF THE SAMARITAN PENTATEUCH In a letter which he addressed to L. CAPELLUS in 1652, James UssHER, the Archbishop of Armagh, mentioned that he had imported five or six examples of the Samaritan Pentateuch. A little more than a century later, Benjamin hENNICOTT was able to locate and identify five of these manuscripts in the collections of the British Museum and Bodleian Library. Whilst the single example deposited in the former library still retains the reference number, Cotton, Claudius B TIIII, the four Bodleian codices have been renumbered as, Laud or. 270, and Bodl. or. 138, 139, and 140. Apart from these five, USSHER made a concise description of a manuscript that he was sending to Louis DE DIEU in 1629. The details, which hENNICOTT quoted, seem to have convinced him that USSHER had indeed owned six examples.

Abstract

SHORT NOTES USSHER'S SIXTH COPY OF THE SAMARITAN PENTATEUCH In a letter which he addressed to L. CAPELLUS in 1652, James UssHER, the Archbishop of Armagh, mentioned that he had imported five or six examples of the Samaritan Pentateuch. A little more than a century later, Benjamin hENNICOTT was able to locate and identify five of these manuscripts in the collections of the British Museum and Bodleian Library. Whilst the single example deposited in the former library still retains the reference number, Cotton, Claudius B TIIII, the four Bodleian codices have been renumbered as, Laud or. 270, and Bodl. or. 138, 139, and 140. Apart from these five, USSHER made a concise description of a manuscript that he was sending to Louis DE DIEU in 1629. The details, which hENNICOTT quoted, seem to have convinced him that USSHER had indeed owned six examples. Consequently he issued this as yet unanswered appeal in regard to the sixth: "If any person would please to make known iJa what other library it saoz? is; the discovery would be very acceptable to the curious" 1).
