Etsuko Katsumata, Associate Professor
Jewish Studies, Rabbinic Literature, Aramaic Languages, and the History of Religions:
My aim is to explore the creativity and the dynamics of Judaism. I focus on the rabbinic age (B.C.1c. to A.D.8c.), when the core of Judaism was formulated. Rabbinic literature educates us on how the Jewish people lived, thought, acted, and survived under the different crises they faced. It also gives us a background on early Christianity.
