Judaism in the Talmudic Period Attitudes to Gentile Paganism

Judaism in the Talmudic Period Attitudes to Gentile Paganism

(p.109) 6 Judaism in the Talmudic Period Attitudes to Gentile Paganism
Mission and Conversion


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the comparatively large body of evidence which survives to testify to the attitudes of Jews in the Talmudic period (c.100 CE to c.500 CE). Judaism in the Talmudic period was hardly less diverse than it had been before 70 CE. The study of rabbinic and non-rabbinic evidence shows that after 100 CE, some but not all Jews adopted a practical denigration of gentile paganism every bit intense as that of early Christians.

Keywords:   rabbinic hostility, Talmudic period, gentile paganism, rabbinic evidence
