Abstract

368 role. Most chapters are devoted to the developments and changes in rab- binic self-representation indicative of the evidence of differences between early and later Amoraic sources. The author carefully discusses relation- ships between prominent rabbis in Amoraic generations, but with regard to his texts he remains very prudent about editorial activity. In choosing this attitude the author clearly opposes the problematic aspects of Neusner's theory on the Talmud's editors, who in his opinion perhaps invented the distinctions between early and later, Palestinian and Babylo- nian, and anonymous and attributed statements throughout the work. I agree with the author's picture of the Talmudic sources showing that the boundaries separating the generations and the distinctions between masters and disciples are found to be far less rigid than modern scholarly accounts lead us to believe.
