Rabbi David Zvi Hoffmann: Berlin, 1900

Posted February 26, 2014

David Zvi Hoffmann served as professor of Talmud and then Rector of the Hildesheimer Seminary in Berlin for close to 50 years. He developed a bold approach to talmudic study. yet, he was very traditional in his interpretation of Mosaic origins of the Bible rejecting the Documentary Hypothesis in his Commentary on Vayikra and a separate work dedicated to disproving Graf and Wellhausen. This lecture will attempt to explain the complex set of factors that led Hoffmann to his understanding of the origins of both Biblical and talmudic law.
