Description - The Sage in Jewish Society of Late Antiquity by Richard Kalmin

This volume explores the social position of rabbis in Palestinian (Roman) and Babylonian (Persian) society from the period of the fall of the Temple to late antiquity. The author argues that ancient rabbinic sources depict comparable differences between Palestinian and Babylonian rabbinic relationships with non-Rabbis. The text provides an analysis of the role of the sage on late antiquity and sheds light on rabbinic comments on such diverse topics as biblical heroes and genealogy and lineage.
