Details

Concluding his five-part presentation of the Mishnaic law of Appointed Times, Jacob Neusner analyzes the system as a whole and describes the formation of each tractate—from Shabbat to Hagigah. Neusner then outlines the Mishnaic law of Appointed Times over the course of various time periods, such as the Time of the Temple and the period of Yavneh from 70 to 120 A.D.

Author Bio

Jacob Neusner (1932–2016) was a preeminent scholar of ancient Judaism and one of the most published authors ever, with more than 900 original volumes to his name. He was educated at Harvard University, the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, the University of Oxford, and Yale University. He was research professor of theology and senior fellow of the Institute of Advanced Theology at Bard College. Neusner’s work has been highly influential, if sometimes controversial. He pioneered applying “form criticism” to Rabbinic texts, and aimed at a humanistic and academic reading of ancient Jewish literature.

Nesuner’s works include the Jacob Neusner Jewish Studies Bundle (99 vols.).
