The Talmud, translated from Hebrew as 'The Study', is a central religious text for Judaism. It is studied by rabbis, men, women and children as well as a healthy community of historians and theologians. Written over the course of six centuries it is the original and definitive source of detail on the commandments or mitzvot given in the Torah. Any practitioner of the faith needs to know not only what he can or cannot do but how to achieve it in practice, a need that is as real today as it was at the inception of the work.

Within the Talmud there is a rich source of ancient Jewish legislative tradition in the Mishna and a robust commitment to religious scepticism and debate in the Gernara, a rabbinical commentary on the interpretation and application of the law. Enshrining these two elements within the text allows the twin threads of Judaism's monotheistic brand of certainty and the grounded practical approach to legal systems to shine through, and allows the spirit of the writers to truly be alive and the doctrine to remain applicable.

This work is utterly relevant today, but the influence of tradition through the instructions within the Talmud on ceremonial practice, prayer positions and wordings clearly shows the ancient roots of Judaism as a cultural tradition and religious community.

Ornamented by the romantic but eloquent musings of Epiphanious Wilson this edition of The Talmud, translated diligently and faithfully by Joseph Barclay will not disappoint. In Wilson's own words 'Hebrew literature contains some of the most profound and most influential productions of the human spirit. It constitutes a potent factor in modern civilization, and possesses merits which place it far above most other literatures of the world'.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 426 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.Excerpt from The TalmudHebrew literature contains some of the most profound and most influential productions of the human spirit. It constitutes a potent factor in modem civilization, and possesses merits which place it far above most other literatures of the world. The common salutation of the Hebrew is Peace, while that of the Greeks is Grace, and that of the Romans, Safety. The Greek sought after grace, or intellectual and bodily perfection, and the power of artistic accomplishment. The Romans ideal was strength and security of life and property. The Hebrew sought after peace, peace in the heart, as founded on a sense of Jehovahs good providence, and a moral conformity in conduct to His revealed will. While the Greek in art, literature, and even in morals, made beauty his standard, he Roman stood for power, domination and law, and the Hebrew for religion. The Hebrew, indeed, introduced into Europe the first clear conception of religion, as implied in monotheism, and a rigidly defined moral law, founded upon the will of Jehovah. The basis of morals among the Latins was political, among the Greeks aesthetic, and among the Hebrews it was the revealed will of Jehovah. While the most important remains of Hebrew literature are comprised in the Scriptures known to us as the Bible, there exists also a voluminous mass of Hebrew writings which are not included in the sacred canon. These writings are of supreme importance and value, and the selections which we have made from them in the present volume give a good idea of their interest, beauty, and subtlety of thought. From the very beginning of their history the Hebrews were a deeply poetic race. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
