Mandaic Lexicon Project Receives Grant

Mandaic Lexicon Project Receives Grant August 2, 2010

I am grateful to Steve Caruso for pointing out the announcement in Biblical Archaeology Review that the Israel Science Foundation will be funding the digitization of Mandaic texts currently in Israel. Hopefully more information will be forthcoming about what manuscripts they have in their possession! The ultimate aim is to produce a much-needed new Mandaic lexicon. Currently the only thing in existence is the out-of-print volume by Drower and Macuch.

Congratulations to Matthew Morgenstern and everyone else involved in this project! All who study the Mandaeans and their language and literature rejoice with you!

There is more information about the project and the grant award online elsewhere on the web, in German and in Hebrew, for those who read those languages.
