Abstract In this article we propose a possible element of the answer to the following question: how did rabbinic Judaism succeeded in defining the normative form of Judaism from the end of Antiquity and the beginning of the Middle Ages? Based on David Brodsky’s philological analysis of tractate Kallah, we propose to read this tractate as a text redacted inside rabbinic circles in Babylonia, in order to propagate the rabbinic way of life outside the walls of the yeshibhah. The article offers a first translation of the tractate into French as well as the analysis of its content in light of the principal question. By situating the tractate in the religious context of Late Antiquity, we show how its teaching provides the non-rabbinic Jews addressees with a mean to understand their religious (thus Jewish) lives in spiritual terms.
