Long-term project funded by the German Research Foundation

      

Corpus Masoreticum, Heidelberg Center for Jewish Studies

Corpus Masoreticum Working Papers (Open Access)

The Corpus Masoreticum Working Papers include peer-reviewed articles of primarily the Project's team members in the fields of Bible text tradition, Masorah research, commentary literature, digital humanities, and editorial practices. Their aim is to document, visualize, and communicate the results in the various research areas of the staff members, offering their latest insights in accordance with the project's aims and methods.

We would like to encourage our readers to take up the discussion by either commenting on the papers, or by submitting a paper on a project-related topic.

In cooperation with the University Library Heidelberg.
