In this book, Hayes addresses the central concern in talmudic studies over the genesis of halakhic (legal) divergence between the Talmuds produced by the Palestinian rabbinic community (c. 370 C.E.) and the Babylonian rabbinic community (c. 650 C.E.). Hayes analyzes selected divergencesbetween parallel passages of the two Talmuds. Proceeding on a case-by-case basis, she considers whether external influences (cultural or regional differences), internal factors (textual, hermeneutical, or dialectical), or some intersection of the two best accounts for the differences.

Editorial Reviews

"The author's thesis is intelligently and well argued, and her work should serve as a corrective to some recent work in the field. Her formulations are incisive and often elegant...Hayes' voice is a welcome addition to scholarly discourse on talmudic literature."--The Jewish QuarterlyReview
