Pressestimmen

'This is a major, groundbreaking exploration of the oral background of the Mishnah (or, more specifically, of the tractate Shevuot), a work the textual fluidity of which still echoes its oral origins. ... The work includes a significant discussion of casuistic form in biblical, Near Eastern, and rabbinic sources.' International Review of Biblical Studies
