來自THE TALMUD: A METHODOLOGICAL INTRODUCTION的熱門評論
Great way of introducing a topic as complex as the Talmud. It was surely amazing to have such course instructors who can rarely be matched both in eloquence and erudition. Overall it was fun!
Best course I've experienced on Coursera so far! Really engaging and not 'dumbed down'. Fantastic and charismatic professor and assistant. Already recommended the course to many friends.
This course is both a traditional and non-traditional Talmud course. The non-traditional gives a historic prospective of the basis of Talmud with a modern view of its derivation.
This is a very well constructed introduction to the Talmud but I think it would be improved if it made more demands on the student in terms of reading assignments and exercises.
Very interesting peek into the world of Talmud (and interesting to this non-Jewish student). I like that the Hebrew-reading student can access the original texts too.
Thank you for the clear instruction about a difficult topic of study. I marvel at the Talmud and the Rabbis who contributed to the wisdom contained within.
An outstanding look into the complexities and nuances of the the Talmud. Well-taught, thought-provoking, interesting...
Now I can read the Talmud and understand the discussions presented in light of the explanations given in the course.
very interesting, challenging, but I find it hard to understand the intonation (highs and lows) of the ph
Nice course. I had no understanding of this part of Judism at all and the course really helped me.
Very informative yet good for beginners! I hope you two do more courses on the Talmud :)
No problem with the course actually. Experienced several technical problems, however.
This is a fantastic course! I have learned so much! Thank you for offering it!
Perfectly suited and well-paced for neophytes and the avidly curiosus.
This is hands down one of the best courses on Coursera
