Description

Letter in Arabic script. Concerns philosophical theology; comments on a treatise the writer had read. Mentions raʾs al-mathība. (Join: Marina Rustow) Reused for letter drafts in the hand of Efrayim b. Shemarya (see PGPID 1244), so must date to before ca. 1050. Mentions old decrees which were in possession of the Rāʾs al-Mathība and also the new ones, probably alluding to the communal archive. Also mentions petitions the Jewish communal leaders wrote to the reigning Caliph. "al-sijillāt al-muʿaẓẓama al-karīma al-qadīma wa l-mujadadda".
