Lee I. Levine, Professor of Jewish History and Archeology at the Hebrew University, has ordered a bewildering mass of scholarship in many fields and languages into a comprehensive study of the rabbinic class of Palestine in its period of ascent to national religious leadership. Never has the rabbinic elite of the third and fourth centuries been so fully drawn as to yield a portrait graced by the majestic blend of all available sources—primary and secondary, literary and archeological, Jewish and non-Jewish.
