Bibliography of Works Pertaining to the Study of Targum. Alex Jassen and Joe Angel. "The following bibliography is meant as an aid to the student of the Aramaic version of the Bible, the Targum. It was compiled as an undergraduate research project under the guidance of Prof. Scott Noegel. It is organized by subject matter as well as by specific version of the Targum. It is our hope that this bibliography will become a great asset in the further development of Targumic and Aramaic studies. While this list is far from exhaustive, we have attempted to present the most up to date and relevant material for research in the Targum. Accordingly, we hope to continue to update this bibliography in order to make it as current as possible."
