Overview

The rise of the Sasanian dynasty in Babylonia influenced the social structure and customs of the populace. In spite of this influence, knowledge of Jewish traditions and laws increased during this period—largely due to the teachings of rabbinic leaders such as Rav and Samuel. Jacob Neusner describes the Jews’ religious response to political changes and shows how they maintained and developed their ideas and traditions.
