Palabras claves

La historia del cuento hebreo en la Edad Media comienza a partir del momento en que éste conquista una posición independiente en el ámbito de la literatura y alcanza la categoría de obra literaria.

La narrativa hebrea del período anterior era una parte integrante de la vasta literatura talmúdico-midrásica sin unas características propias; hasta el siglo VIII el cuento no era más que uno de los múltiples elementos que se encontraban dispersos en esta literatura, al servicio de los intereses de los sabios talmudistas para ilustrar sus explicaciones y transmitirlas de forma más amena al pueblo. Pero la situación cambió completamente a comienzos de la Edad Media, cuando el cuento adquirió forma literaria independiente y aparecieron las primeras colecciones de cuentos. Cuatro son las más importantes por su composición y antigüedad: el Alfabeto de Ben Sira, el Midrás de los Diez Mandamientos, el Libro Precioso de Salvación y el Libro de Cuentos (Sefer ha-Ma‘asiyyot).

Esta antología está compuesta por una selección de 121 cuentos de tema histórico, biográfico, religioso o social que aparecen en el Libro de Cuentos o Sefer ha-Ma’asiyyot.

Tales of the rabbis

The story of the Hebrew tale in the Middle Ages begins from the moment in which it conquers an independent position in the field of literature and reaches the category of literary work.
The Hebrew narrative of the earlier period was an integral part of the vast talmudic-midrasic literature without its own characteristics; until the eight centuries, tales were only one of the many elements that were scattered in this literature, in the service of the interests of the Talmudist thinkers to illustrate their explanations and transmit them in plainer way to the people. But the situation changed completely at the beginning of the Average Age, when the tale acquired independent literary form and appeared the first collections of stories. Four are the most important because of their composition and antiquity: The Ben Sira Alphabet, The Midras of the Ten Commandments, The Precious Book of Salvation and the Book of Stories (Sefer ha-Ma'asiyyot).
This anthology is composed of a selection of 121 stories of historical, biographical, religious or social themes that appear in the Book of Stories or Sefer ha-Ma’asiyyot.
