By Jacob Neusner / Wipf & Stock / 2008
Jewish scholarly work and teaching in Babylon declined following the deaths of the rabbinic scholars Rav and Samuel. Jacob Neusner details the role of the Rabbinate in Babylonian Jewish history during this transitional period, focusing on cultural and sociopolitical aspects of rabbinic life such as educational and legal systems, festivals and holidays, and marriage and family affairs.
