رسالة CUL Or.1080 J268


Second leaf of a long letter in Judaeo-Arabic. Fragment (right side of both recto and verso). Partially concerning a dispute of religious scholars. Continuous reference to the sender's brother. Mentions Abū Sahl (Menashshe) Ibn al-Qaṭāʾif, the father of Halfon b. Menashshe. Dating: second half of the 11th century. On verso refers to Abū Ḥanīfa either sending a legal query or giving a responsum to (yuftī) a certain ʿEli. Almost certainly the same sender (but probably not the same letter) as T-S 12.215, which is also the second leaf of a long letter and also mentions Abū Sahl Menashshe. (Information in part from Goitein’s index card.) ASE
