Paraliterary text T-S NS 98.47



A brief narrative of the calendar controversy of 921/2 appears within a treatise or manual in Judaeo-Arabic on the Jewish calendar, which was composed and written only a few decades after the controversy. The author is unknown, but appears to be an outsider and might even have been non-Jewish. One bi-folio of this manual has been preserved, T-S NS 98.47. The purpose of this manual is to provide essential guidance on how the rabbinic calendar is constructed. The calendrical data in the manual relate to ‘cycle 249’, a 19-year period beginning in 954/5CE.
