More Info: forthcoming from Oxford University Press, This article presents a new approach to understanding the discourse of the Babylonian Talmud and the ways it generates meaning. This approach is rooted in Mikhail Bakhtin's theory of dialogism as explicated in his "Discourse in the Novel" This approach is rooted in Mikhail Bakhtin's theory of dialogism as explicated in his "Discourse in the Novel" and is based on a reevaluation of the literary and theoretical implications of the findings of the previous generation of textual philological Talmudic scholarship.
The final section presents a close reading of a Talmudic passage which demonstrates how this new approach sheds fresh light on the place of the feminine voice in the Talmud. Did the Rabbis Believe in Agreus Pan? Patriarchs, Emperors, and Gods in Bereshit Rabba 63 more. The story encapsulates the complexity of the relationship between The story encapsulates the complexity of the relationship between the rabbis and the Roman political, cultural and religious hegemony, showing the rabbis as both in eternal conflict with the Roman Empire and its culture and, yet, in many ways, very Roman themselves.
I conclude by comparing and contrasting these views with the approaches of early Christian thinkers.

Gamliel, one of the key texts of what has of late become known as the 'Yavne Cycle. First, I will lay out a framework for understanding the range of possible modes of transmission of stories, contrasting between what I call 'performa-tive' and 'textual' modes of transmission. I argue that the Deposition narrative is the product of a hybrid form of transmission. Though the overall story was produced and transmitted in a performative context, integrated into the larger story is an older narrative tradition which was transmitted using textual means.
We will then explore more deeply the performative process through which the Deposition tradition was developed and transmitted. I will show that in addition to the linguistic and formal considerations generally associated with the per-formative development of stories, the performative tradition that produced the Deposition stories also included thematic and interpretive parameters as well.
Modes of Narrative Transmission As I have argued in my previous work on mishnaic narrative, there are two basic ways of explaining the existence of parallel texts that share significant common material, along with pronounced differences. I call these possibilities 'textual' and 'performative' approaches. Creators of Worlds - The Deposition of R. Gamliel and the Invention of Yavneh.
This article will examine the development of Yavneh as a literary and cultural construct from tannaitic sources through the two versions of the story of the deposition of R. Gamliel, in Yerushalmi Berakhot and Bavli Berakhot Does being religious mean you are sure you know what God wants? Halberstam explores these questions in the Bible and among the rabbis of the Mishnah, in both legal and theological contexts. Analyzing large swaths of texts from the Mishnah, Mekhilta, Sifra, and Sifre, Halberstam focuses on case studies from three areas-ritual laws of purity, civil law, and capital punishment.
In each case, she emphasizes the things that the Bible took for granted and the ways in which the Rabbis problematized those assumptions, replacing them with legal constructs. Trained in biblical studies and expanding those skills into rabbinics, Halberstam is more sensitive than most to the ways in which the Rabbis departed from their biblical sources.
She applies the latest theories in the study of rabbinics to the texts before her, teasing out a basic underlying worldview Bibliography, index, notes. Betrokkenen Auteur Chaya T. Halberstam Co-auteur Chaya T. Halberstam Uitgever Indiana University Press.
