A complete and detailed description of the Hebrew manuscript collection of the University of Leyden, primarily the collections of the distinguished Levin Warner, Dutch ambassador to the Ottoman Empire , and the preeminent Renaissance scholar, Joseph Scaliger, who took all knowledge as his province; both left their books in Eastern languages to Leyden. This collection is remarkable for its Karaite texts, which Warner particularly collected, but also contains translations of, and commentaries on, Arabic philosophy, the Hebrew scriptures, the Talmud, astronomical, calendrical, and medical texts, writings on other languages, and a treatise on gems, otherwise unknown.

The Life & Legend of the Vilna Ger Tzedek Count Walenty Potocki

ISBN: 1-59333-097-9
Walenty Potocki was a young Polish nobleman who abandoned wealth, power, and unlimited worldly prospects to convert to new religion - Judaism. Potocki was betrayed by a member of the religious community he embraced and burned at the stake by the Church he left behind in 1749. This book examines eleven versions of this remarkable man’s story and the heated, previously unpublished, correspondence between the Potocki clan and one of his early biographers. Noble Soul is the record of one man’s defining faith, and of the compelling human need for personal spiritual fulfillment.
