Abstract:

"Questions about the language and construction of the Jewish Bible, especially its first five books, are among the most fascinating in paleography. Was Moses the sole originator of the Pentateuch?

A wide range of scholarship and deep-seated beliefs--encountered in spiritually charged settings, from a Jewish settlement in Hebron to Jerusalem's Shrine of the Book--enable Beckford to piece together the historical and ideological sources of the Old Testament"--Container.
