About this product
- DescriptionDeviancy in Early Rabbinic Literature deals with the status of those groups and individuals who, for various reasons, appear to have place in mainstream Rabbinic Jewish society, or may be perceived by that society as posing a threat to its rms and to its very existence. The book examines the thoughts and attitudes of the Rabbis set forth in various sections of the Mishnah, Tosefta and Talmud. Deviant groups studied include witches, prostitutes, Gentiles, bastards, Nazirites, soldiers, Kutites, the disabled and the menstruous woman. Social anthropological methodologies are used to provide a unique perspective on the implicit message of the redactors of these Rabbinic texts, and to make these important texts equally accessible to both scholars and laymen interested in acquiring a deeper understanding of these important issues.
