BOOK 5

BABYLONIAN TALMUD

translated by MICHAEL L. RODKINSON

Book 5 (Vols. IX and X)
[1918]
Tracts Aboth, Derech Eretz-Rabba, Eretz-Zuta, and Baba Kama (First Gate)

Tract Aboth


OUTLINE: This book starts out with three tracts on ethics, including the lucid and moving Pirqe Aboth (Sayings of the Fathers), (also available at sacred-texts in a translation by Taylor). This edition of Aboth comes with extensive commentary. The Baba Kama is the first section of a three-part opening arc of the Jurisprudence section. To the modern reader it is of interest because of the unintentional and (sometimes pungent) atmospheric details of everyday life in first century Israel. Many of the Baba Kama cases start when ‘an ox gores’ someone or something; the modern equivalent would probably be automobile moving violations. The debates are notable because they are based equally on scripture and appeals to an emerging standard of common-sense justice and human rights.
