Weaving the Fabric of Another Opinion

Intermediate Talmud: Tractate Shabbat, Lesson 40


Weaving the Fabric of Another Opinion: Intermediate Talmud: Tractate Shabbat, Lesson 40

Earlier, we successfully sourced ritual law regarding the minimum size for fabric to be susceptible to ritual impurity from Torah verses about Tzara’at – but all according to one opinion in the dispute we were focused on. Now, the Talmud attempts to do same for the second opinion. Artifacts defined by form, rather than matter and perceived uses of specific items serve to animate the legal theories employed as a lively give and take unfolds along the lines of these disparate schools of thought and exacting analysis of additional biblical verses about ritual impurity. (Talmud, Shabbat 26b-27a)
