Talmuda de-Eretz Israel : Archaeology and the Rabbis in Late Antique Palestine, Hardback Book

Talmuda de-Eretz Israel : Archaeology and the Rabbis in Late Antique Palestine Hardback

Edited by Steven Fine, Aaron Koller

Part of the Studia Judaica series

Description

Talmuda de-Eretz Israel: Archaeology and the Rabbis in Late Antique Palestine brings together an international community of historians, literature scholars and archaeologists to explorehow the integrated study of rabbinic texts and archaeology increases our understanding of both types of evidence, and of the complex culture which they together reflect.

This volume reflects a growing consensus that rabbinic culture was an "embodied" culture, presenting a series of case studies that demonstrate the value of archaeology for the contextualization of rabbinic literature.

It steers away from later twentieth-century trends, particularly in North America, that stressed disjunction between archaeology and rabbinic literature, and seeks a more holistic approach.
