Brief semantic book structure:
The opposition to magic and sorcery — sorcery and idolatry — Philo’s approach and the Tannaitic conception — the spread of magical practices among the common people — the influence of the Sages — the question of the legitimate miracles — miracles in the Bible — the miracles wrought by the early pietists and by Tannaim and Amoraim — miracles as an expression of the Lord’s might — the religious significance of miracles — miracles as a means of sanctifying God’s name — miracles and the law of recompense — miracles and the law of nature — miracles in the Halakha — miracles in the Christian faith — the difference between the miraculous tales in Rabbinic sources and the Evangelical stories — the tendency to restraint discernible in the miracle stories — the restriction of exaggerated eulogy in prayers.
Based on an exhaustive study of the sources by means of philological-historical methods, the work presents a vivid picture of the religious and social thoughts of the Tanna'im and Amora'im, their absorption and rejection of extraneous concepts, their spiritual struggles and the goals they sought to achieve. The intellectual ferment marking this era crystallized principles that fashioned the Jewish national and religious image for generations.
The wisdom of the great Jewish teachers of antiquity is on display here like in no other book. Two indexes (one by topic, one by texts mentioned and both are hyperlinked to their relevant pages for ease of use) help the reader make use of the many obscurer texts that Urbach quotes, some of them virtually impossible to find in translation anywhere.
The sheer wealth of material collected in this volume is amazing. The book is well organized by 'doctrine' or belief, and Urbach does an excellent job of quoting the texts that he uses to come to his conclusions about what the Sages (Rabbis) believed, when and where they believed it, and how the belief changed over time.
