Abstract Targum manuscripts and early printed editions consist of more than just the text. They also include diverse paratextual elements to give the user information on how to read and understand the text. This information can be very useful in research on interpretation and textual history. The added information is sometimes difficult to interpret because the key to how to interpret and weigh the information is not always obvious. In this article some kinds of paratextual information are discussed within the context of cultural historical Targum research, such as the project of ‘A Jewish Targum in a Christian World’.
