In the first through the sixth centuries of the common era, successive circles of Rabbis in the Holy Land and Babylonia developed Rabbinic Judaism. Transforming the biblical Temple- oriented form of Judaism, they shaped a vision of Judaism centered around the piety of following and studying the Torah to achieve a sense of the divine in this world. This piety entailed both an intellectual and emotional dimension that spoke to individuals and that affected the developing synagogues and local communities of Jews. The rabbinic teachings were eventually compiled into the Talmud and Midrash in a manner that perpetuated the piety of study.
