Synopsis: Since the 1970s, the Mishnah seen as a document on its own terms has taken its place as a principle focus in the study of religion and of Judaism. This work covers approaches to the study of the Mishnah in the contemporary academy. It proves in diverse ways that the Mishnah defines the critical focus of the study of Judaism. It is a document that rewards study in the academic humanities.
