One of the barriers involved in teaching students of Biblical Hebrew about the Masorah is the lack of introductory literature on the subject. Although a lot of information about the Masorah is available in print, most of it is in technical professional journals or encyclopedia articles. Scattered about in disparate sources, often not in English, this literature is easier to ignore than it is to incorporate into introductory Hebrew classes. As a result, most students of Biblical Hebrew complete their studies without any background on the Masorah. This volume fills this gap by providing an introduction and glossary to the Masorah of the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia. Although the volume could be used by any student of the Hebrew Bible, it is specifically designed to be helpful for students who are just learning Hebrew. Thus it can serve as an important parallel text for second semester or second year Hebrew courses. The introductory chapters give an overview of the field of Masoretic studies and explain the mechanics of using the Masorah of BHS. The annotated glossary provides students with definitions and explanations for most of the terms used in BHS, including examples.
A Manual for the Users of Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia
Author: Reinhard Wonneberger

This manual is designed to be used in conjunction with the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) and has the following goals: to enable beginners to gain access to the language of the text apparatus of BHS and to the Masoretic apparatus as well, to document the apparatus language of BHS in its entirety and to provide references to the Old testament text wherever possible, to propose a new concept of dealing with the apparatus of BHS and thus to advance the science of publishing critical editions of a text. These goals are achieved through a translation of the items of the apparatus of BHS into English and through a complex but clear presentation of the relevant material in paragraphs, figures, and indexes.
Genesis of Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia as a handy single issue is now available again! Edited by Otto Eiβfeldt. Content and print image are identical to the current 5th revised edition of Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensai (BHS). The booklet is printed on stiff paper and possess a wide margin for notes - the ideal basis for an intensive study of the Hebrew Text.Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) is known to be the definitive edition of the Hebrew Bible. It is widely regarded as a reliableedition of the Hebrew and Aramaic scriptures and is the most widely used original-language edition among scholars. It is basedon the Leningrad Codex. The Leningrad Codex is the oldest complete Hebrew Bible still preserved. It originally appeared in installments, from 1968 to 1976, with the first one-volume edition in 1977; it has since been reprinted many times. The textis a nearly exact copy of the Masoretic Text as recorded in the Leningrad Codex. The Masoretic notes are completely revised.
When Gerard Weil edited the masora of Codex Leningradensis for Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS), he encountered certain problematic notes in the Masora Parva (Mp). He labeled these "sub loco" in the apparatus for the masora. Weil planned to discuss these notes in the third volume of Massorah Gedolah, the lists of the Masora Magna. Unfortunately, he died before he was able to publish this volume, leaving the reader of BHS only with the knowledge that some unexplained problem or special feature exists whenever the term "sub loco" is encountered. This dissertation examines all of the sub loco notes in the Torah of BHS and provides the sort of analysis and discussion of them that Weil intended to do. There is an entry for each such note which compares the Mp of Codex Leningradensis, BHS and (where extant) the Aleppo Codex.
