Abstract

The purpose of this article is to present a Crimean Karaim Tanakh translation from the holdings of Cambridge University Library, shelf mark BSMS 288. This manuscript is the only one known so far to contain the entire text of the bible except Chronicles. Of its four volumes, volumes I and IV are discussed in more detail, since they are
the subject of a research project aimed at preparing a critical edition of the text with an English translation. Therefore, it is the content of these two volumes that are presented here.
