SHAPIRA’S NOTES. Three pages of Shapira’s preliminary transcription of the Valediction of Moses have surfaced, the second of which is shown here. Idan Dershowitz found them in the volume Handwritten Inventory of the Hebrew Manuscripts Collected by Shapira in the Berlin State Library. These pages even contain Shapira’s handwritten notes, corrections, and reflections, revealing his struggles to find the correct interpretation of the text.
