Jewish Targum cover Alberdina Houtman et al. (eds.), A Jewish Targum in a Christian World. Leiden: Brill, 2014. isbn: 9789004267817

«What is the use of a Targum in a cultural setting where Aramaic is not a common language anymore? And why would Christians be interested in a typically Jewish text in an otherwise anti-Jewish milieu? These and related questions have served as guides for Alberdina Houtman, Eveline van Staalduine-Sulman and Hans-Martin Kirn in bringing together the articles for the present book.»
