Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of reference books and articles relevant to the analysis of the literature of the Sages. The various documents that include Mishna, Tosefta, the Talmudim, the Midrash collections and other items, were on the whole not composed by individual authors. Rather, each of these is the final result of a collective creative process which took place over the course of many generations. The literature of the Sages, includes many categories: halakha (law), aggada (legend), Midrash (exposition of Scripture), targum (translation of Scripture), prayer, and others. However, the division into separate literary categories was a rather late phenomenon in the development of this literature and, certainly in the initial stages, all categories developed together.

Keywords: halakha; literature of the Sages; Mishna; Talmudim; Tosefta
