History & Development of Talmud 2

History & Development of Talmud shiur 2

In this second shiur Rabbi Triebitz studies the Talmud and commentaries for evidence as to when it was compiled. He finds a fundamental argument between the Rashbam and Ramban on one hand, and Rabbeinu Tam (and everyone else) on the other, as to whether the Talmud is a historical record of chronological responses to questions, or whether the statements in the Talmud were compiled later by an anonymous author who made it appear that they were responding to each other. This difference of opinion also leads to an argument about whether Gaonim or Savoraim speak in the Talmud.
