Chapter Summary

This chapter investigates the status of the &t;Kutim,&t; conventionally referred to as Samaritans, as viewed by the redactors of the Mishnah. To investigate the Kuti as understood by the framers of the Mishnah, it is first necessary to examine the Mishnah as an independent, but "aggregate" document, as well as to discuss its framers' intention. The Mishnah, edited about 200 CE, is traditionally attributed to the pen of Rabbi Judah the Prince. It is the first postscriptural collection and study of Jewish laws. The framers of the Mishnah perceived their paragon Temple society essentially as a paradigm of the Jerusalem Temple.
