Rabbinic literature

Rabbinic literature, in the broadest sense, is any literature written by Rabbis concerning Judaism. It is better restricted though, to that literature which has achieved some degree of canonicity among Jews (or at least some Jews). In that sense, it would include:


"Back to the Sources: Reading the Classic Jewish Texts", Barry W. Holtz, Summit Books.

"Introduction to Rabbinic Literature" Jacob Neusner, Anchor Bible Reference Library/Doubleday

"Introduction to the Talmud and Midrash", H. L. Strack and G. Stemberger, Fortress Press

Shemuel Safrai and Peter J. Tomsan "The Literature of the Sages: Oral Torah, Halakha, Mishna, Tosefta, Talmud, External Tractates" Fortress, 1987
