Pirkei Avot & Avot of Rabbi Natan

Pirkei Avot & Avot of Rabbi Natan

$29.95

Avot de-Rabbi Nathan, usually printed together with the minor tractates of the Talmud, is a Jewish aggadic work probably compiled in the geonic era (c.700–900 CE). Although Avot de-Rabbi Nathan is the first and longest of the “minor tractates”, it probably does not belong in that collection chronologically, having more the character of a late midrash. In the form now extant it contains a mixture of Mishnah and Midrash, and may be technically designated as a homiletical exposition of the Mishnaic tractate Pirkei Avot, having for its foundation an older recension (version) of that tractate. It may be considered as a kind of “tosefta” or “gemarah” to the Mishna Avot, which does not possess a traditional gemarah. Avot de-Rabbi Nathan contains many sentences, proverbs, and incidents that are not found anywhere else in the early rabbinical literature. Other rabbinical sayings appear in a more informal style than what is found in the canonical Mishna Avot redacted by Judah I.

В настоящем издании представлены два талмудических трактата: Пиркей Авот и Авот де-рабби Натан (в двух версиях). Пиркей Авот — единственный из трактатов Мишны, который содержит не галахические суждения, а исключительно назидательные высказывания 63 мудрецов-танаев. В традиционной еврейской учености это очень популярный трактат, который был включен в молитвенники для чтения по субботам; многие выражения из него стали поговорками. Этот трактат — важный источник для исследования талмудической мысли и еврейской теологии вообще, в нем сформулированы фундаментальные концепции природы и сущности человека. Авот де-рабби Натан — сборник афоризмов, толкований и рассказов, приписываемых танаям, по содержанию и структуре тесно связанный с Пиркей Авот. Этот трактат сложился в постталмудическую эпоху и дошел до нас в двух редакциях, вторая из которых была обнаружена в XIX в. Переводы трактатов, осуществленные в начале прошлого века Н.Переферковичем, в нашем издании публикуются в значительно переработанном и комментированном варианте, подготовленном доктором Реувеном Кипервассером.
