The Karaites, a small Jewish sect that arose twelve centuries ago and still exists today, was at one time the most outspoken and productive schismatic division in Judaism.

The Karaites contributed much to the Jewish literature of the Middle Ages, for they developed their own corpus of theological dogmas, liturgy, juristic exegesis, metaphysical concepts, secular poetry, apologetics, and sermons. All extracts have been translated directly from Arabic, Aramaic, and Hebrew original sources.

The Karaites were a Jewish sect that florished in Medieval times but fell into decay. The Karaites rejected the Oral Law of the Rabbis and created their own interpretation of the Bible, a bit like the Protestant rejection of Roman Catholicism during the Reformation. Their origins are lost but it seems to centre in Babylon and the figure of Anan ben David.

The Karaites are practically unknown today even though they still survive in modern times. At one stage their numbers rivaled the Rabbanites. They engaged in vigorous polemics. I found the texts in this anthology enlightening. A brief chronicle of Jewish sects by Jacob al-Kirkisani was the most interesting text for me.

The fragments of Anan's 'Book of Precepts' were a nice snapshot of early Karaism. The explanation on Karaite holidays by Aaron ben Elijah is great if you are able to contrast them with Rabbinate holidays. I'm partial to a good polemic so the attack on the Oral Law by Salmon ben Jeroham is a valuable text.

I wish there were more included in this volume. Leon Nemoy has done a great job with this anthology so it is no surprise it is still in print. He was thoughtful in his selection of texts. The translations are in a nice idiomatic English.

Amazing book. Best resource to understand Karaism from the original sources. A must read for anyone who wants to enhance their knowledge of this amazing branch of Judaism.
