In this Book

summary
This book sits at the intersection of two topics, rabbinic constructions of sexuality and the rhetoric that the rabbis of late antiquity used to promote their sexual mores. Satlow goes underneath the rabbinic legislation about secuality, asking how they understood sexuality - what assumptions about sexuality inform rabbinic dicta and law? The study also examines how these assumptions moved between Palestinian and Babylonian rabbinic communities and the kinds of arguments that the rabbis thought would be effective in promoting their legislation.
