Travel Narratives in Rabbinic Literature

Voyages to Imaginary Realms


As a literary genre travelers' stories have grown out of oral traditions. These traditions flourished along the trade routes of the ancient world. Indeed the roads around the Mediterranean basin were busy with traffic during the Roman and Byzantine periods. This anthology of twenty-one travelers' tales examines the Talmudic tales as an inter-cultural phenomenon.
