Exhibition Review: "Printing the Talmud: From Bomberg to Schottenstein"
Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Fall 2005
The author reviews an exhibition mounted at Yeshiva University in New York, displaying an array of elements illuminating the production and dissemination of the Talmud text during the past five hundred years. The author identifies three basic themes discernible in the elements chosen for the exhibition: (1) editions of the Talmud, over three dozen in the original and ten in translation; (2) "firsts" such as the first complete printed Babylonian Talmud, and the first Talmuds printed in various locations; and (3) elements exploring serious difficulties encountered by printers of the Talmud, such as Church censorship and disputes between various printers.
