Avot de-Rabbi Nathan is one of the most important Hebrew sources for the history of Judaism in late antiquity and could in fact be the most informative documentation of early rabbinic theology and ethics. This monograph contains a complete edition of all the Genizah fragments of Avot de-Rabbi Nathan. The volume includes facsimiles, transcriptions, text comparisons and critical analyses which shed new light on the ongoing debate about editorial processes in rabbinic literature.
