click to enlarge


INTRODUCTORY NOTES SECTION 11.01:

If an editor, or perhaps the original scribe, felt that the wrong word was in the text he would place a dot over or under each of the offending letters and then usually but not always write the proper reading in the space between the lines. 

See page 3[1]SEE: http://www.moellerhaus.com/qum-3.htm#dotsand 5th and 6th lines from the bottom for an example of dotted words with corrections written between the line. 

An example of a later editor making such corrections can be seen on Scroll page 33[2]SEE: http://www.moellerhaus.com/qum-33.htm#omitbetween lines 6 and 7 where the editor’s script is obviously different from the scribe’s. 

An example and explanation of dots placed under and over two words not belonging in the text, most likely done by the original scribe, can be seen on Scroll page 10 in line 23[3]SEE: http://www.moellerhaus.com/qum-10.htm#dots(4th and 5th words). See the notes there under the heading Scribal Mistakes. 

Another interesting correction using dots can be seen on scroll page 40 in line 9[4]SEE: http://www.moellerhaus.com/qum-40.htm#dots

Read the description under the heading Editorial Additions to the Text. 

Page 26 Line 10[5]SEE: http://www.moellerhaus.com/qum-26.htm#mdotsThere is a superflous mem which is marked with perhaps 3 dots to show it is a mistake. 

Page 28[6]SEE: http://www.moellerhaus.com/qum-28.htm#dotshas an unusual number (4) of dotted entries on one page. 

On page 29[7]SEE: http://www.moellerhaus.com/qum-29.htm#dotsthere are two entries that are dotted and no attempt is made to write between the lines indicating that the dotted words do not belong in the text. 

On page 23 line 12[8]SEE: http://www.moellerhaus.com/qum-23.htm#wawdotsthere is a single letter dotted. This is very likely an editorial mistake rather than a scribal mistake. 

On page 3 line 6[9]SEE: http://www.moellerhaus.com/qum-3.htmat the end of the line there are 2 dots that I have no explanation for. 

On page 31 there is an interesting dotted letter in which more than one editor confused a correction. The original scribe wrote the word order shin beth which should have been reversed to be correct. See this on page 31[10]SEE: http://www.moellerhaus.com/qum-31.htm#dots, Line 5: 9th word.
