dc.description.abstract Much research has already been done in Jewish studies regarding the woman and issues related to her. Works written on this subject, include contributions on Tannaim literature, Amoriam literature and concerning the Post-Talmud period which is also related to Talmud sources. The exceptional new descriptive and cartographic works on generations, personalities, activities, places and schools of the Tannaim and Amoraim form the basis of this thesis. In the course of the work it is indicated that scholars tend to improve the status of women in the significant phase and bond (marriage) which touches her life in the future. These trends were expressed in different ways by the Tannaim and Amoraim, through new laws, recent amendments, strange amendments and new standards which they promulgated, through their authority and their personal behaviour regarding the issue under discussion. These ideas were institutionalised by the marriage contract which is supposed to lead the male companion to more tolerance and responsibility in his relationship with her. Indeed, they largely held him responsible for the good relations between companions. These trends may imply that the community, at the time of the Tannaim and Amoraim, occasionally revealed attitudes not entirely favourable to the woman and her status. en
