Harry Freedman is a writer and academic with a PhD in Aramaic. His previous books include The Talmud: A Biography. He contributed to the Encyclopedia of Modern Jewish Culture and has written for the JC, the Jewish Quarterly, Judaism Today and the Huffington Post.
The Talmud is a repository of centuries of rabbinic wisdom on law, legend and life, with a dialectic structure setting it apart from virtually any other text. Harry Freedman looks at the book’s history and Jacqueline Nicholls shares the drawings she is making to express her daily encounters with the text, continuing the long, loud, passionate Jewish argument that has lasted generations and continues to shape Judaism.
Harry Freedman, Bishop Michael Ipgrave and RabbiRaphael Zarum analyse the surprising damage inflicted by troublesome translations.
The Bible has been translated more than any other book in any language and, astonishingly, controversial translations underlie a large number of religious conflicts that have plagued the world.
