The Sage in Jewish Society of Late Antiquity explores the social position of rabbis in Palestinian (Roman) and Babylonian (Persian) society from the period of the fall of the Temple to late antiquity. The author argues that ancient rabbinic sources depict comparable differences between Palestinian and Babylonian rabbinic relationships with non-Rabbis.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Kalmin's approach is salutary. He presents this material in a clearly written and generally well organized format... completely accessible to non-specialists... Specialists... will benefit greatly at a different level. Both groups of readers owe Kalmin a debt of gratitude."

"By paying close attention to the chronological and geographical provenance of rabbinic traditions, Kalmin provides us with a more variegated and complex portrait of rabbinic culture than is found in historical studies...."
-Christine Hayes, Yale University "Journal of Biblical Literature, 2001
"Kalmin's generous footnotes document his evidence meticulously, and he offers a fine bibliography and careful indexing. This is a technical work of interest...."
