The section titled “Texts and Translations” will be dedicated to short editions and translations of works that are difficult to access, but of particular interest to students of Iberian medieval literature. Our first publication in this series, “Romance Literature in Hebrew Language with an Arabic Twist: The First Story of Jacob ben El‘azar’s Sefer ha-meshalim, is an excellent example of the kind of works we hope to continue publishing in “Texts and Translations”. As an original English rendition of the first chapter of Ben El ‘azar’s Book of Stories, Isabelle Levy and David Torollo’s edition makes an important contribution to our field, since the nuanced translation itself is the first of its kind, opening up another source of Hebrew literature to a broad audience of scholars.
