The Jewish Social Contract: An Essay in Political Theology

Note: When “Rabbi” appears in parentheses after a proper name, it denotes a Sage mentioned in the Talmud and related rabbinic literature, who is called there either “Rabbi” or “Rav.” When a Hebrew phrase appears in parentheses after a proper name, it denotes a more readily known abbreviation of the name of a posttalmudic rabbinic authority (often preceded by “R.” for “Rabbi” in the notes) or the major literary work by which he is more readily known. When a Hebrew phrase appears in parentheses after a common name, it denotes the original Hebrew term of which the English term is a somewhat arbitrary translation.
