Rabbinism is the philosophy, taught by Jewish Rabbis subsequent to the dispersion, which is devoted to mystical explanations of the oral law. The Jewish Talmud is a compilation of this philosophy. Rabbinism contains many allegorical and symbolic modes of instruction, borrowed from Arabaic, Grecian, and more largely Egyptian, philosophies. Some legends from the Jewish Talmud have been incorporated in the mythical philosophy of Speculative Masonry.
