"The Sage in Jewish Society of Late Antiquity" explores the social
position of rabbis in Palestinian (Roman) and Babylonian (Persian)
society from the period of the fall of the Temple to late
antiquity. Author Richard Kalmin argues that ancient rabbinic
sources depict comparable differences between Palestinian and
Babylonian rabbinic relationships with non-Rabbis." The Sage in
Jewish Society of Late Antiquity" provides a cultured and
stimulating analysis of the role of the sage in late antiquity and
sheds new light on rabbinic comments on such diverse topics as
biblical heroes and genealogy and lineage.
