This volume introduces students of rabbinic literature to the range of historical and interpretative questions surrounding the rabbinic texts of late antiquity. The editors, themselves well-known interpreters of Rabbinic literature, have gathered an international collection of scholars to support students' initial steps in confronting the enormous and complex rabbinic corpus. Unlike other introductions to Rabbinic writings, the present volume includes approaches shaped by anthropology, gender studies, oral-traditional studies, classics, and folklore studies. Clear, accessible introduction to the Talmud and Rabbinic literature, and the academic disciplines that currently explore it Cutting edge essays by major contemporary scholars - all of the contributors are leaders in this field Extensive bibliographical guidance to the field Contents Introduction; Part I: 1.
