ARPACHSHAD, according to Gen. 10: 22, the third son of Shem, after Elam and Asshur. He was of especial significance in the ( priestly) genealogy, since he served as the connecting link between Shem and Abra-ham, the tenth of this family line. Traces of the name are found by many in the province of Arpachitis, in Armenia, whereas others regard כשד , the last part of the name, as the origin of the name Kasdim ( Chaldees).

He was a rabbi in Castile in the first half of the 15th cent. In 1422 he received a request from Don Luis de Guzman, the master of the Order of Calatrava, to undertake a translation of the Bible into Spanish, together with a short commentary. Arragel completed this work in the course of eight years with the assistance of Padre Arias de Encinas and Fra Juan de Zamora. Arragels translation was based to a large extent on the Latin version of Jerome, but follows the Hebrew exactly where Jerome differs from it. The commentary quotes not only Jewish authorities, but also classical writers such as Aristotle and Pliny, and such Christian scholars as Saint Bernard and Nicholas of Lyra. The manuscript, written in 515 folios and in double column, has 334 illustrations. It passed by gift and descent into the possession of the Duke of Alba, who published a photographic reproduction of the work ( Madrid, 1922).

The record of Jewish artistic production is without doubt to be traced to the Biblical period. Nothing, indeed, has been pre-served which goes back to the remotest antiquity. Nevertheless, the account of the construction of the Tabernacle and its various appurtenances, especially the Cherubim, presupposes a considerable degree of technical ability ascribed to the Mosaic and Solomonic eras. Fragmentary pieces of ivory decoration from Ahabs ivory palace in Samaria have been discovered in the course of recent excavations. They are in the style universally current in Syria at this period, and they were probably executed by non- Hebrew craftsmen. The period of the Second Temple brought Palestine within the cultural ambit of Hellenic civilization and artistic influence. At this period, strengthening of the hold of the Torah, and rigid interpretation of the Second Commandment, indubitably acted as a deter-ring influence to artistic development.
