An Introduction to the History and Sources of Jewish Law

Because of how the Roman rule initiated movements such as the loss of the Temple and the emergence of the symbol of Jewish spiritual independence, the Jewish population resorted to numerous instances of revolt and rebellion against the Romans. While the term ‘tanna’ is used to refer to one who recites the law, the tannaitic period signifies a time of immense political turmoil and significant changes and developments within Jewish Law. While this period is conventionally believed to have started such events as the Romans destroying the Second Temple and its institutions in 70 C.E., this chapter attempts to look into writings regarding the developments in the tannaitic period, which ranges from the early first century to the early third.

Keywords:   Roman rule, spiritual independence, Temple, Jewish Law, tanna, tannaitic period
