    schema:description "Rubenstein combines a close textural and literary examination of each story with a careful comparison to earlier versions from other rabbinic cmpliations; This unique approach provids insight not only into the meaning and content of the current from of the stories but also into how redactors reworked those earlier verions to address contemporary moral and religions issues. Rubenstein's analysis uncovers the literary methods used to compose the Talmud and sheds light on the cultureal and theological perspectives of the Stammaim--the anonymous editor-redactors of teh Babylonian Talmud."@en ;

    schema:description "Rubensteing aso uses these storis as a window into understading more boradly the culture of the late Babylonian rabbinic academy, a hierarchically organized and competitive institution where sages studied the Torah. Several of the stories he studies here describe the dynamics of life in the academy: master-disciple relationships, collegiality and rivalry, and the struggle for leadership positions. Others elucidate the worldview of the Stammaim, including their perspectives on astrology, theodicy, and revelation."@en ;
