The Textual Lineaments of Three Medieval Identities: Reading “Targum Sheni” of the Book of Esther
Wednesday, May 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Royce Hall Room 306, 10745 Dickson Plaza
Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States

CMRS Roundtable.  This is the Second Targum of the Book of Esther, a “translation” of Esther from Hebrew into Aramaic.  It contains material about Solomon and Sheba not found in the Hebrew Esther, but found in the Koran. Targum Sheni was written in Byzantine Palestine before the rise of Islam and then used in Islam’s textual construction of itself as the theological heir of Temple Judaism: the Koranic account of Solomon and Sheba islamicizes preexisting Jewish additions to the story of Esther.
