Attribution

The category indicates the attribution (or the lack thereof) of a given textual unit, usually transmitted in the form “rabbi X said”. The unit can be either attributed or unattributed: if it is attributed, the tag denoting the specific character from the rabbinic list is provided – otherwise the unit is marked with the #unattributed tag.

Actor

The category indicates a literary character being the protagonist of the narrative, usually provided in the form “rabbi X did this” or “it happened to rabbi X that”. The unit can feature a specific actor, a concrete group of humans, humans in general or it can be provided in a way which does not involve humans. If it speaks about the exact actors, the specific character from the rabbinic list is provided – otherwise the unit is not annotated in this category.

Locale

The category indicates the region in which a given human (either the one to whom a tradition is attributed or the actor) lived throughout most of the time. If a given human travelled between the regions, both tags are used.
  • #palestine – the human lived in Palestine.
  • #babylonia – the human lived in Sassanian Empire.

Group

The category indicates the broader historically contextualized social group to which the given human (either the one to whom a tradition is attributed or the actor) belongs. If a given human lived in the transitory period, both tags are used.
  • #early – the human lived in the early post-biblical times.
  • #kohen – the human was a priest living in Judea of the second temple period.
  • #zugot – the human belonged to the pairs of sages living at the break of eras.
  • #tanna – the human was a Tanna or lived in the Tannaitic times.
  • #amora – the human was an Amora or lived in the Amoraic times.

Due to the limitations of the calculations performed in Excel and for the sake of clarity of presentation, two more categories describing the units were added to the database:

  • attribution locale and group – the category aggregates the locale and group tags of all the characters to whom the traditions in a given unit are attributed;
  • actor locale and group – the category aggregates the locale and group tags of all the characters appearing as actors in a given unit.

Biblical actor

The category indicates a biblical literary character being the protagonist of the narrative. If it speaks about the exact actors, the specific character from the biblical list is provided – otherwise the unit is not annotated in this category.
