By Jacob Neusner / Wipf & Stock / 2007
In the fourth part of Jacob Neusner’s breakdown of the Mishnaic law of Women, Neusner provides a translation and explanation of the following Mishnah tractates: Sotah, Gittin, and Qiddushin. Sotah pertains to the accused wife who is forced to submit to her husband if he expresses jealousy concerning her behavior. Gittin deals with the shift in a woman’s status from being consecrated to a single man in marriage to being unconsecrated, and free to marry again. Qiddushin pertains to the consecration of a woman through betrothal to a particular man. Neusner examines these tractates chapter by chapter, comparing the themes in them with those found in other Mishnah tractates and other Scripture.
