BORISOV, ANDREY YAKOVLEVICH
BORISOV, ANDREY YAKOVLEVICH (1903–1942), Russian Orientalist. Borisov made important contributions to the history of medieval Jewish philosophy. Among the genizah manuscripts preserved in Leningrad, he discovered manuscripts of Isaac Israeli and the Karaite Yūsuf al-Bāsir. His works include an article on the tractate Ma'ānī al-Nafs, the so-called Pseudo-Baḥya (in the USSR Academy of Sciences, Izvestiya (Otdeleniye obshchestvennykh nauk; 1929), 775–97), and on Moses ibn Ezra's poetry (ibid., no. 4 (1933), 99–117). He also wrote shorter articles on problems in medieval Jewish literary history.
