This work, which brings forward the historical reality from Tannaitic sources, is a product of the new approach by Dr. S. Zeitlin in his extensive studies which represent an essential revolution in the dealings with the research into the history of the Second Commonwealth. Since Dr. Zeitlin's theory sheds new light on many chapters in the history of this era, I approached this work by collecting the sources and their historical interpretation in order to extend the understanding of Tannaitic sources within their historical background.
