Chapter Summary

This chapter describes the ties between Galilee and Judea, and especially between Judeas central area and its periphery from the period after the Bar Kokhba Revolt until the end of the talmudic era . By contrast, there is a greater variety of information concerning the ties of Galilean sages with Judean sages, with the local Torah center in Lod and also with the outlying regions of Judea. However, the rabbinic sources that relate to the period originated in Galilee, were compiled by the sages who lived there. Even the sociological element of group solidarity in the rabbinic world finds only partial expression in rabbinic literature and is reflected mostly in the ties that existed among Judean sages and in their ties with sages living in Galilee or Caesarea. These ties were essential for strengthening their group solidarity and their social status.

Keywords: Galilee; Judea; talmudic period
