 Publications of the IMHM

Publications Between 1957 and 1968, the IMHM published three catalogues of selected Hebrew manuscripts in microfilmed collections. These catalogues generally do not include manuscripts adequately described in earlier printed catalogues. The catalogue of the Vatican Library, however, includes descriptions of all the Hebrew manuscripts in the collections of the library including those described by Assemani in Latin. In all three catalogues, manuscripts are described very briefly in Hebrew. Since then, the Institute as published several other works, including comprehensive catalogs.
 
Some of these publications are written in Hebrew, but are listed here in English.
