9780761843344: 3: Pesiqta Rabbati: A Synoptic Edition of Pesiqta Rabbati Based Upon All Extant Manuscripts and the Editio Princeps (Studies in Judaism)

This book is a reprint of the first publication of the complete manuscript of Pesiqta Rabbati, Volumes I-III (1997-2002), a major rabbinic work from the Land of Israel from the 5th-6th century. Based upon the annual cycle of Biblical passages for the Jewish Holy Days and special Sabbaths, the text demonstrates the artful form of the rabbinic homily and the midrash method of scriptural exegesis.

All extant Hebrew manuscripts as well as the 17th century editio princeps are presented here in a synoptic edition, allowing the reader to view the texts in adjacent columns without emendation. This edition contains English introductions and an index of Greek and Latin expressions, scriptural passages, exegetical terms, subjects, place names, personal names, names of Biblical figures, angels and historical figures, rabbinic authorities, as well as meshalim and ma'asim, emendations, addenda and corrigenda.

About the Author:

Rivka Ulmer received her PhD in Judaic Studies from Goethe Universität in Frankfurt am Main with a dissertation in midrash. Ulmer teaches at Bucknell University. She was the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Chair in Jewish Studies from 2002-2007 and is now Associate Professor of Jewish Studies. Ulmer's research focuses upon midrashic literature; she is founder and co-chair of the Midrash Section of the Society of Biblical Literature.

Review:

One can therefore only welcome any new addition to the corpus of scholarly editions of rabbinic literature, and the scholarly world must indeed be appreciative of the publication of Pesiqta Rabbati on the most basic ground of making previously inaccessible textual data easily available to everyone. (Professor Chaim Milikowsky, Bar Ilan University, Israel The Jewish Quarterly Review, (1999))

Dating from fifth-sixth century Palestine, but containing much older material, Pesiqta Rabbati is a major collection of rabbinic homilies based upon biblical passages from the Torah for Jewish holy days and special Sabbaths. Volume three contains the index, chapter 53 of the Pesiqta Rabbati, supplemental manuscript material, and corrigenda. (Reference and Research Book News, November 2002.)

L'Édition de la Pesiqta procurée par le professeur Rivka Ulmer est une contribution décisive dans la connaissance de la littérature midrachique. Cette édition deviendra l'instrument de travail indispensable des enseignants et des étudiants de l'exégèse traditionelle. (Professor Maurice-Ruben Hayoun (Paris), Université de Genève, Switzerland)

The publication of the synoptic edition of all the extant manuscripts of Pesiqta Rabbati is a first in many ways: the first new edition of this major rabbinic work since the 19th century, and the first synoptic edition of a Midrash. This work is the result of a major undertaking and has already become a valuable tool for scholars of Jewish texts. (Dr. Lieve Teugels, editor for the Littman Library of Jewish Civilization, former Associate Professor of Jewish Studies, University of Utrecht in th)
