The Talmud : a biography : banned, censored and burned : the book they couldn't suppress

Freedman, H. (Harry)2014
Books
In 'The Talmud', authoritative Jewish scholar Harry Freedman recounts the engrossing story of the ancient scripture, which contains over a million words in thirty five volumes. A central text of Rabbinic Judaism, the Talmud covers topics as diverse as law, faith, medicine, magic, ethics, sex, humour and prayer. It has been banned, censored and burnt, guided monarchists and republicans, inspired poets and artists, and upheld by Protestants and popes. Pored over for over 1500 years, the Talmud's story is a fascinating insight into the history of Judaism.
