'The Palestinian Talmud Was Not Tampered with by the Pens of Emenders': Clarifying a Textual Version Rule

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article will demonstrate that Nahmanides's statement regarding the unamended Palestinian Talmud relates to the sources cited in that work. The advantage of the Palestinian Talmud stemmed from the neglect suffered by that work which enabled it to escape the hegemony of the Babylonian Talmud whose textual versions were imposed on all other Oral Torah works. Of course, it also stemmed from the proximity of the Palestinian Talmud in both time and place to the Mishnah and Tosefta. This advantage lent great significance to the exegesis of these sources in the Palestinian Talmud.
