Brit., 11th Edn.), compiled by the celebrated German Hebrew and Rabbinic scholar Joannes Buxtorf, professor of Hebrew at the University of Basel. Buxtorf's knowledge and scholarship were so highly regarded by his contemporaries that he was frequently consulted by Jews themselves on maters relating to their ceremonial law. The present work was first published in German in 1603, followed by an expanded Latin version the following year. Buxtof also published Manuale Hebraicum et Chaldaicum (1602), Lexicon Hebraicum et Chaldaicum (1607), and Biblia Hebraica (1618). His two most important works, the Lexicon Chaldaicum, Talmudicum, et Rabbinicum and the Concordantiae Bibliorum Hebraicorum, were left unfinished at the time of his death, and were posthumously edited for publication by his son.
