The Cairo Geniza on who wrote the Bible

GENIZA FRAGMENT OF THE MONTH (AUGUST 2016): Who Wrote the Bible? (Kim Phillips). A baraita in the Babylonian Talmud gives one account, but there is an alternative account preserved in masoretic traditions and also found in a fragment from the Cairo Geniza.

Past posts noting Cairo Geniza Fragments of the Month in the Cambridge University Library's Taylor-Schechter Genizah Research Unit are collected here.
