This chapter takes the story of the curse of Canaan as a starting point and states that it serves as a point of departure for presenting the varied views of prominent Karaite commentators on Genesis 9:18–28, including Yaʿqub al-Qirqisani, Yefet ben ʿEli, Yusuf ibn Nuh, and Yeshuʿah ben Yehudah. The comparative analysis is arranged according to seven leading thematic-exegetical questions, while in each category the exegetical responses are presented in chronological order, commencing with al-Qirqisani (first half of the tenth century) and ending with Yehudah (mid-eleventh century).

Keywords:   Canaan, curse, Karaite commentators, Yaʿqub al-Qirqisani, Yefet ben ʿEli, Yusuf ibn Nuh, Yeshuʿah ben Yehudah
