This course will introduce you to the forms of Jewishness that emerged in Palestine and in the Diaspora in the first six centuries of the Common Era. We will focus on the historical background, principal writings (Mishnah, Midrash, Talmud) and social and cultural contexts of those ancient Jewish sages known as the Rabbis. We will examine the new forms of religious piety that the Rabbis inaugurated and that were to have such a significant impact on Jewish culture. We will also treat non-Rabbinic Jews, and the Greco-Roman, Christian, Sasanian and Zoroastrian cultures in which Palestinian and Babylonian Jews lived.
