This course is designed as a graduate level introduction to rabbinic literature, a multifaceted corpus produced by Jewish scholars (known in English as Rabbis) from the 1st to the 7th century CE. It provides the necessary information for contextualizing the rabbinic project historical, social, cultural, and religious backgrounds as well as mapping of the various genres represented in this literature. In addition it offers a first hand encounter with the texts in their original language as well as introduction to the most important scholarly trends in the field. As such, the course is geared toward advanced students of Judaism who wish to gain basic knowledge of the rabbis and their literary endeavor as well as those interested in any aspect of Greco-Roman or Byzantine civilization and wish to work with rabbinic material. Students will attend all meetings of Intro. to Rabbinic Literature (HJCS 270; Judaic 270). In addition, the seminar will meet for another 2 hour session per week, during which we will engage in an in-depth study of rabbinic sugyot in the original language and discuss modern scholarship and theory on rabbinic literature. Second year proficiency in Hebrew is required as well as an introductory level course in Aramaic.
