Ink analysis in Cairo Geniza fragments

  • The Cairo Geniza is an “archive” discovered in the 19th century in Ben Ezra Synagogue in Fustat, a district in Old Cairo (Egypt), located south of the center of modern Cairo. The giant collection of mostly Jewish documents that vary in genres, languages and writing supports contains a large number of early medieval Hebrew manuscripts, mostly in fragmentary form. The larger part of the Cairo Geniza is stored today in the Cambridge University Library. The Geniza provides sources for the literary, linguistic, historical studies of the various aspects Jewish life. As the documents attest, at least two Jewish communities co-existed in Fustat up to 11th century: a so-called Babylonian and Palestinian. These communities had different leaders, different traditions and lived independently. The differences seem to manifest themselves also in the paleographical, codicological and some material properties of the manuscripts produced by each community.

My work addresses the ink composition in the documents attributed to the members of these communities. For the determination of the inks type and composition I employ reflectography and µ-XRF spectrometry, respectively. The preliminary typological studies indicate that iron-gall inks were found predominantly in the manuscripts attributed to the Palestinian community.zeige mehrzeige weniger
