The Arabic Bible

Statement: The impact of Saʿadyāh Gāʾōnʼs Arabic Pentateuch translation on medieval Muslim scholars has not yet been investigated. Moreover, this landmark effort still waits to see a modern critical edition. The latter shall be provided by considering important 7th/13th century Arabic-Islamic manuscripts which clearly account for Muslim reception of Saʿadyāhʼs work.
