The Composition of the Talmud: How Did This Text Come About?

Prof. Moulie Vidas, Princeton University

The diversity of the Talmud's sources is apparent even at a quick, superficial glance: it presents teachings by different sages, from different periods, and different times; it contains short and lengthy stories; and numerous anonymous comments which frame the text.

In this talk, we will discuss the central theories about the way the Talmud was formed. We will look at the different sources and consider how the scholars who shaped the Talmud both preserved the old and created something new as they re-presented, adapted, and put together the different materials that constitute the text as we have come to know it.
