Obiectiones in dicta Talmud, et al.


Analysis of Content

[a1r] [Theobaldus de Sexannia]: Obiectiones in dicta Talmud. ‘Incipiunt errores Iudeorum extracti ex talmut. Et quid sit Talmut'. Incipit: ‘[T]almut est doctrina Iudeorum et liber qui diuiditur in quatuor libros . . .’ ed. being prepared by G. Dalian Explicit: sic regnum Christianorum velociter conteratur. ed. J. Chr. Wolf in Bibliotheca Hebraea, 4 vols (Hamburg, 1733), IV 556-68, short version of the text that ends at 562; see Kaeppeli IV 293-5 no. 3672(II); in this edition, the order of the two sections is the reverse of the description in Kaeppeli. On Theobaldus (fl. 1244-1250), ‘subprior OP in villa Parisiensi', see Kaeppeli IV 292-6; VL IX 737-41; Jeremy Cohen, The Friars and the Jews: The Evolution of Medieval Anti-Judaism (Ithaca, NY, and London, 1982), 74, where Cohen notes that most of the Latin texts of the Extractiones de Talmut record the name of Thibaut de Sézanne, OP (whom some scholars have identified as being Theobaldus, subprior) as being the editor and translator. See also G. Langer, ‘Von sieben Inkunabel-Ausgaben der “Thalmut-Obiectiones” und von der Frage nach dem Verfasse dieser Schrift Bijdragen', Tijdschrift voor Filosofie en Teologie, 38 (1977), 431-44.

[a5r] Probationes novi testamenti ex veteri testamento. Incipit: ‘[T]olle arma tua pharetram et arcum ad roborandum . . .’ Explicit: reprobatio Iudeorum et emundatio gentium. According to Kaeppeli IV 293-5 no. 3672(I) this is Pharetra fidei Catholicae contra Judaeos; however, only the first two lines of this text correspond to the beginning of Pharetra fidei, the rest is different; see also Gerhardt Powitz, Die Handschriften des Dominikanerklosters und des Leonhardtstifts in Frankfurt am Main, Kataloge der Stadt- und Universitätsbibliothek Frankfurt am Main, 2,1 (Frankfurt am Main, 1968), at 139, who records that the prologue in MS. Praed. 58 is the same as, but that the rest of the text differs from, that of the Pharetra fidei catholice of H 12914.
