Product Description

In a bold challenge to the long-held scholarly notion that Rabbinic Judaism was already an established presence during the Second Temple period, Gabriele Boccaccini here argues that Rabbinic Judaism was actually a daring reform movement that developed following the destruction of the Jerusalem temple and that only took shape in the first centuries of the common era. Through careful analysis of Second Temple sources, Boccaccini explores the earliest roots of the Rabbinic system of thought in the period from the Babylonian exile to the Maccabean revolt, or from Ezekiel to Daniel. He argues convincingly that a line of thought links Rabbinic Judaism back to Zadokite Judaism through the mediation of the Pharisaic movement. Roots of Rabbinic Judaism is sure to be widely debated by all interested in the origins and development of modern Judaism.

Editorial Reviews

Benjamin G. Wright
"Roots of Rabbinic Judaism continues the stimulating work Boccaccini began in Beyond the Essene Hypothesis. He discovers the 'roots' of Rabbinic Judaism in the Zadokite priesthood of the Second Temple period, and his presentation of this Zadokite Judaism is fresh and challenging. Like its predecessor, this book opens new paths in difficult terrain. In these two volumes Boccaccini offers a bold reconstruction of the varieties of Judaism that were antecedent to the emergence of both Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism."

John J. Collins
"Gabriele Boccaccini's earlier book, Beyond the Essene Hypothesis, has been hailed as one of the most original and provocative works on Second Temple Judaism in recent years. He has now written a wide-ranging and ambitious typology of Jewish intellectual history in this period. He brings a fresh and original perspective to the material, and his bold reconstruction is sure to be controversial."

Old Testament Essays
"A very stimulating and provocative publication which will play a formidable role in the study of Judaism and the investigation of the Biblical canon in the years to come. "
