BOOK OF LEGENDS SEFER HA-AGGADAH PDF

The detailed records demonstrate just how intricate their knowledge was in almost every aspect of their beliefs. The records were conveyed orally and put into writing many hundreds of years after their origin. This makes them hard to date.

There are also variations and it is difficult to say which are the earlier ones. When they were finally written down, neither were they compiled into a single organized book.

They were simply absorbed as explanations or supportive evidence to discussions in other Jewish writings such as the Talmud. In turn, the Talmud was complied in two editions: one in Israel and the other - later one - in Babylonia. The authors of The Book of Legends choose the Babylonian Talmud as the main source of its Aggadah even though it is later and probably less original than the Israeli Talmud.

Their reason is that the Babylonian Talmud is better known to the public. They intend to give modern, dispersed Jews an insight into their ancient beliefs and worldview.

This is a wonderful book, however, it is limited in its scope because it deliberately selects more from later Aggadah and promulgates the chosen views of the authors. To this extent, I was disappointed by this book. Particularly since I was looking to study rabbinical beliefs about creation and the structure of the cosmos. Specifically, I needed to learn more about the mystical belief in seven earths and seven heavens constituting one cosmic unit.

This belief is almost identical to that of ancient yogis in India. But nothing at all about the 14 realms of the cosmos is mentioned in this book. I; also Angelo S. The correspondences with ancient yoga beliefs are extraordinary.
