Alinda Damsma

This introductory article acquaints the reader with a fascinating, ancient translation of the scroll of Esther, the so-called 'Targum to Esther'. This translation exists in several versions, and therefore it is better to use the plural and speak of the 'Targums to Esther'. The language and setting in life of these Targums will be discussed, their history will be traced, and some representative examples will be given to show the distinctive character of these translations.
