Synopsis

Tractate Berakoth
by A. Lukyn Williams

The Mishna about prayer.

"This is a translation of Tractate Berakoth, a portion of the Mishna which deals with prayer: specifically when, where and how to pray. It includes the Mishna and the Tosephta commentary. This translation was produced by a Christian scholar in the early 20th century. While Williams is not hesitant to reference Christian texts, he is primarily interested in how the rules expressed in this Mishna influenced the early Christians, not in making a sectarian point. This adds some comparative interest. In addition, the extensive scholarly apparatus increases the value of this edition, the only complete public domain translation of this part of the Mishna."
