The Talmud is a unique repository of debate among generations of Jewish sages. While we may be familiar with the names Hillel, Shammai, Ben Zakkai and other Talmudic sages, and we may understand the schools of thought they represent, we are less likely to know much about their individual personalities, their inner lives, the historical contexts in which they lived.
