One of the earliest English translations of the Babylonian Talmud, the first volumes of Michael L. Rodkinson's New Edition of the Babylonian Talmud began appearing in 1896. And in 1918, after many revisions and editing, The Talmud Society published the second editions of Rodkinson's monumental work in one complete collection. The Babylonian Talmud: Original Text, Edited, Corrected, Formulated and Translated into English contains all nineteen volumes that Rodkinson completed—almost the entire Babylonian Talmud (contains all of the tractates in the Order Mo'ed (Festivals) and Nezikin (Damages), plus some additional material related to these Orders).
With the Logos Bible Software edition, you can reap the maximum benefit from The Babylonian Talmud: Original Text, Edited, Corrected, Formulated and Translated into English (19 vols.) by getting easier access to the contents of the collection—no more thumbing through numerous volumes to find what you are looking for. Adding The Babylonian Talmud to Logos Bible Software will provide the opportunity to link more references than almost any other set of books we haven’t yet produced. To pick one example, in the books that Logos Bible Software has already digitized, there are more than 1,700 references to the tractate Pesachim, which is just one of the 24 tractates included!
Michael Levi Rodkinson (1845–1904) was the first scholar to translate major portions of the Babylonian Talmud into English. Born in Israel, Rodkinson lived in Germany for a short period before moving permanently to New York City, where he worked as a publisher. His other works include The Pentateuch: Its Languages and Its Characters and The History of Amulets, Charms, and Talismans.
