“The Printed Chapter/Aspect of the Talmud”
Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)
Many of us are familiar with the typical appearance of a printed page of the Talmud, on which myriad commentaries surround the central original text, while corresponding with it and debating various points and perspectives.
The Talmud, however, began as an oral “text”, passed down from generation to generation, and when it was eventually put down on paper, it first appeared in manuscript form. It would take centuries for the text of the Talmud to evolve into what we are familiar with today.
Dr. Ittai Joseph Tamari will discuss the Talmud’s transition from manuscript to print and its further evolutions afterwards.
