Title

MS 1042, Deuteronomy 6:20 to 12:12

Description

MS1042 is written in a Moroccan hand. It contains one and a half sheets of parchment with a total of six columns of text. Each column of text is formatted to contain 48 lines. The scroll shows indications of damage by fire with the entire top margin burned.
This scroll employs a simple "North African" calligraphy patterned after a Spanish hand. Characteristic of this hand is the use of the CHET of Rashi and the lack of the KOTZ of Rabbenu Tam on the letters YOD. The KHAF SOFITS are squared on the top right-hand corner, with long upper TAGS placed on the PEHs and YODS. The GIMMELs are also written with their feet "stuck" to the bottom of the letters.
