Pirke de-Rabbi Eliezer represents a late development in "midrash”, or classical rabbinic interpretation, that has enlightened, intrigued and frustrated scholars of Jewish culture for the past two centuries. Midrash and Multiplicity addresses the problems raised by this equivocal work, and uses Pirke de-Rabbi Eliezer in order to assess the nature of "midrash”, and the renewal of Jewish interpretive culture, during its transition to the medieval era.
