Talmud Yerushalmi &
Graeco-Roman Culture III
Edited By Peter Shafer
503 pages, 6 1/4" x 9 ¼"
This third volume, which offers further insights into the most important source of late antique Judaism in relation to its cultural context, marks another step in a research project on the Talmud Yerushalmi initiated by the Institute of Jewish Studies at the Free University (Berlin) in 1994 and concluded by a conference held at Princeton University in November 2001.
This volume focuses on a wide range of topics such as gender studies, aspects of everyday life, Roman festivals, magic, etc., hereby reflecting on the methodological problems inherent in intercultural studies. Thus, this collection of articles could also serve as a model for similar enterprises in other studies of Judaism in various cultural contexts.
