Of Scribes and Sages: Ancient versions and traditions
The studies that make up Of Scribes and Sages once again illustrate the fruitful results of tradition-critical investigations. Readers will observe again and again the coherence and convergence in the methods and findings of these studies, despite being developed in diverse contexts and often with very different points of departure.
A great deal of progress has been made in the last twenty-five years of research in the field of comparative midrash. New texts and broader, more encompassing methods have invigorated the field and have led to new insights and genuine progress. The studies contained in Of Scribes and Sages have opened up new lines of inquiry that readers will find stimulating and suggestive of further avenues of research.
