Abstracts

We are gradually building here an extensive database of abstracts of articles and books relating to Jewish law (broadly defined). It is organised according to the categories used in the Survey of Recent Literature of The Jewish Law Annual, and the initial material reproduces the Index to the Surveys in vols. 1-5 and the Surveys of vols. 6, 7, 9 and 10. The categorisation is to a degree subjective, and many articles may be relevant to more than a single category. Researchers are therefore encouraged to use the free text search engine below, whether looking for authors, topics or sources cited.

We encourage all scholars active in the field to send abstracts of their articles for inclusion, by e-mail to Bernard.Jackson@man.ac.uk.
