THE BOOK OF EZEKIEL

England, early 13th century, 8 1/8 x 6 in. (20.6 x 15.2 cm), MS. Bodl. Or. 62, fol. 59a

This book functioned as study tool for Christian scholars. The Hebrew text was copied as in a Latin codex, from left to right. The text here is Ezekiel 30:13–18. A Latin translation appears in the margins with further interlineations above the Hebrew. These follow the order of the Hebrew, making it easier to match Hebrew and Latin words and to show grammatical structures.
