Masoretes or 'Masorites', were scribes whose major concern was the accurate transmission of each word and letter of the Bible text. As a means of ensuring accuracy, the Masoretes utilized side margins on pages to record information that would indicate any possible intentional or unintentional change of text by past copyists. They operated between the 6th and 10th centuries AD.
