Item description for Review of Rabbinic Judaism (Review of Rabbinic Judaism: Ancient, Medieval, and Modern) by Alan J. Avery-Peck...
The Review of Rabbinic Judaism - Ancient, Medieval, and Modern, the first and only annual to focus upon Rabbinic Judaism in particular, publishes principal articles, essays on method and criticism, systematic debates, occasional notes, long book reviews, reviews of issues of scholarly journals, assessments of textbooks and instructional materials, and other media of academic discourse, scholarly and educational alike.
The RRJ fills the gap in the study of Judaism, the religion, which is left by the prevailing division of Rabbinic Judaism among the standard historical periods (ancient, medieval, and modern) that in fact do not apply; and by the common treatment of the Judaism in bits and pieces (philosophy, mysticism, law homiletics, institutional history). Scholarship presently obscures the fundamental unity and continuity of Rabbinic Judaism from beginning to the present. No other annual in "Jewish studies" focuses upon the study of religion, let alone upon the single most important Judaism.
