The Readings Called Severin.
This Is Appendix 34 From The Companion Bible.

   Josephus tells us (Life, 75) that Titus brought away with him from Jerusalem the codices (or manuscripts) that were in the Temple. These were among the spoils he took to Rome, and were deposited in the royal palace, about A.D. 70.
   About
A.D. 220 the Emperor Severus, who built a synagogue in Rome which was called after his name, handed over the codex of the Pentateuch of the Jewish community.
   Both codex and synagogue have perished, but a list of thirty-two passages in preserved in the Massorah, wherin this codex differed in letters and words from other codices. There are two lists extant: one (prior to
A.D. 1280) in the possession of the Jewish community of Prague, and the other in Paris National Library (no. 31, folio 399a). But there are other Severin preserved, which are noted in the margin of this edition.
   The following is the complete list. Those that affect the sense and furnish instruction are referred to in the margin, in notes on the passages affected. Some of them relate only to spelling, and have no instruction in them.
