  • The Rhetoric of the Babylonian Talmud, Its Social Meaning and Contextby Jack N. Lightstone

    Wilfrid Laurier University Press 2006; US$ 42.95

    Virtually from its redaction about the sixth century A.D., the Babylonian Talmud became the rabbinic document par excellence. Through its lens almost all previous canonical rabbinic tradition was refracted. Study and mastery of the Talmud marked one as a rabbi, a "master." This book examines the character, use and social meaning of the formalized... more...

    NYU Press 2011; US$ 22.95

This leads to the question of the attitude to... more...
