They shape an anomaly for the documentary examining of the Rabbinic canon of the formative age. to take away that anomaly, this venture classifies the categories and varieties of narratives and exhibits that specific files convey precise personal tastes between these forms.

The solutions for the documentary personal tastes are in Volumes One via 3, for the Mishnah-Tosefta, the Tannaite Midrash-compilations, and Rabbah-Midrash-compilations, respectively. quantity 4 then units forth the documentary background of every of the categories of Rabbinic narrative, together with the real narrative, the ma'aseh and the mashal.
