January: Great Jewish Thinkers of Late Antiquity
January 3, 10, 17, and 24, 2022—Mondays @ 1 p.m. ET
Late Antiquities covers a 460-year period from 70-630 CE which began with the destruction of the Second Temple and continued until the rise of Islam. During this period rabbinic Judaism emerged, and sectarianism waned. Prominent Jewish figures arose whose attributions appear in the Rabbinic Writings: Mishnah, Tosefta, Palestinian and Babylonian Talmuds, and within the Mishnaic and Amoraic Midrashim. This course will examine four of those figures – Rabbi Yochanon ben Zakkai, Rabban Gamliel, Rabbi Eliezer ben Harkanas, and Rabbi Akiva.
