The Yemeni Manuscript Tradition

Brill Academic Publishers has published The Yemeni Manuscript Tradition (2015), edited by Sabine Schmidtke, Professor in the School of Historical Studies, David Hollenberg of the University of Oregon, and Christoph Rauch of Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. Ranging in period from Islam’s first century to the modern period, all the articles in this volume emerge from the close scrutiny of the manuscripts of Yemen. As a group, these studies demonstrate the range and richness of scholarly methods closely tied to the material text, and the importance of cross-pollination in the fields of codicology, textual criticism, and social and intellectual history.
