Originally published at the
turn of the twentieth century, The Jewish Encyclopaedia is a
monumental twelve-volume resource on all aspects of Judaism. In the
Dictionary of Ancient Rabbis, Jacob Neusner has selected every entry
from The Jewish Encyclopaedia devoted to the rabbis of the Mishnah,
Tosefta, and Talmud. Todays scholars, students, clergy, and laity
will find this a valuable companion to Judaisms classic texts.
