Mysteries of the Alphabet
The Origins of Writing
Paperback      ISBN: 0789205211
The author is a professor (comparative literature), a poet, the author of fiction and non-fiction, and a rabbi, and is affiliated with the Aleph Center for Jewish Studies in Paris and the Bar-Ilan U. in Tel Aviv. This work, translated from the French (1999, Editions Assoudine, Paris) is a charming, visually delightful, information packed exploration of letters, words, and meanings. In particular, it tells how proto-Sinaitic pictograms derived from Egyptian hieroglyphics and discovered in the Sinai at the beginning of the 20th century evolved through the millennia and left their traces on our alphabet.
