Rashi and Biblical Interpretation

Lecture no. 11 from the course: Great Minds of the Medieval World

Rashi and Biblical Interpretation

Taught by Professor Dorsey Armstrong | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Discover the remarkable commentaries on the Torah and Talmud by the French Jewish rabbi Rashi—works considered definitive within the faith—in which he sought to thoroughly explicate the texts to readers. Using textual excerpts, learn how later scholar-writers known as “tosafists” worked to further elaborate and extend Rashi’s commentaries.
