This seminar will examine some of the most significant aspects of Jewish life in the era ranging from after the destruction of the Second Temple until the beginning of the fifth century (70 – 429 CE). We will concentrate on reading, analyzing and discussing the primary sources. The major body of source material for this epoch in Jewish history is the diversified corpus called rabbinic literature. Nevertheless, we will not confine ourselves to these texts, but instead we'll look at a more comprehensive sampling of sources particularly Christian and archaeological material. There is no language requirement for this course at the 400 level, and all sources will be provided with English translation. Students who wish to take the course on the 500 level will be required to demonstrate reading abilities in one ancient language (Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek or Latin), and to prepare an additional paper.
