For a contemporary evaluation of the medieval variants in manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible and Rabbinical literature, see M. H. Goshen-Gottstein, “Hebrew Biblical Manuscripts, Their History and Their Place in the HUBP Edition,” Biblica 48 (1967), pp. 243–290; and F. M. Cross, “The History of the Biblical Text in the Light of Discoveries in the Judean Desert,” Harvard Theological Review 57 (1964), pp. 281–299, esp. 287–292. Both papers are republished in F. M. Cross and S. Talmon, Qumran and the History of the Biblical Text (Harvard University Press: Cambridge, 1975), pp. 42–89 (Goshen-Gottstein) and 177–195.
