Item description for Judaism in Late Antiquity: Where We Stand, Issues and Debates in Ancient Judaism (Handbook of Oriental Studies/Handbuch Der Orientalistik) by Jacob Neusner...
This work commences weith a fresh perspective of a theoretical question: what, in a religion so concerned with social norms and public policy, can we possibly mean by "law" when we speak of law in Judaism? It then proceeds with two chapters on Second Temple Judaism, and two on the Dead Sea library. The two papers in the present part provide an overview of matters and a systematic, critical account of the fading consensus, respectively.
