Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Torah Centers and Rabbinic Activity in Palestine, 70-400 C.E.: History and Geographic Distribution contains preface and abbreviations. The book, a historical-geographic study of rabbinic activity in Palestine from 70 to 400 CE, the mishnaic and talmudic periods, maps the locations of Torah centers and uses these data to examine the socio-cultural makeup of the rabbinic world. Arranged according to regions, the book lists the names of all the villages, towns and cities in Palestine in which sages were known to have been active during this time period. It provides statistical information about these settlements - the number of sages active in each settlement in each generation and the number of settlements that were the scene of rabbinic activity in each generation and in each region, followed by a comparison of the scope of rabbinic activity in the different regions.
