Editorial Reviews


Kalmin's approach is salutary. He presents this material in a clearly written and generally well organized format... completely accessible to non-specialists... Specialists... will benefit greatly at a different level. Both groups of readers owe Kalmin a debt of gratitude.
–David Goodblatt, The Jewish Quarterly Review

...Professor Kalmin has given his readers the best they could hope for. We his readers are in his debt.
–Robert Goldenberg, Hebrew Studies, 2000

By paying close attention to the chronological and geographical provenance of rabbinic traditions, Kalmin provides us with a more variegated and complex portrait of rabbinic culture than is found in historical studies....
–Christine Hayes, Yale University Journal of Biblical Literature, 2001

Kalmin's generous footnotes document his evidence meticulously, and he offers a fine bibliography and careful indexing. This is a technical work of interest....
Religous Studies Review

This engaging book presents an important thesis and argues it clearly and convincingly.
–Lawrence M. Wills, Episcopal Divinity School, Journal of the American Oriental Society, 2001
