Item description for The Annual of Rabbinic Judaism: Ancient, Medieval, and Modern (Annual of Rabbinic Judaism, Vol 1) by Alan J. Avery-Peck...
This journal focuses upon Rabbinic Judaism and publishes articles, essays on method and criticism, systematic debates (Auseindersetzungen), 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 "Annual" aims to fill a 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, modern), and by the common treatment of the Judaism in bits and pieces (philosophy, mysticism, law homilectics, institutional history, for example).
