Coffee with a Codex: Pentateuch in Arabic

An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually with Kislak curators and talk about one of the manuscripts from Penn's collections. Each week we'll feature a different manuscript and the expertise of one of our curators. Everyone is welcome to attend.

On March 14, Curator Dot Porter brought out CAJS Rar Ms 166, a copy of the Pentateuch and Historical Books (Joshua, Judges, Ruth, Samuel, Kings and Chronicles) written in Arabic in Egypt, 1760. (OPenn, Internet Archive, CWAC Recording)
