Podcasts of “’They Cared For Me in Life and They Will Care For Me in Death’: Deathbed Stories in the Babylonian Talmud”

The Babylonian Talmud contains several lengthy narratives detailing the deaths of Torah Sages. Some are carefully orchestrated deathbed scenes, others are more raw and unplanned. In this class we will explore these narratives, noting how they are constructed from earlier texts and questioning why the Bavli editors chose to tell these stories and what we can learn from them.

Taught by Wendy Amsellem, Fall 2014 & Spring 2015.
