Abstract Whenever referring to Jewish traditional literature in his Dialogus contra Iudaeos Petrus Alfonsi used the word doctrina. By avoiding any explanation of the different literary genres contained in the Talmud, like halakhic and aggadic texts, Petrus wanted his Christian readers to perceive each and every part of the Talmud as religiously authoritative. In the frame of the Christian-Jewish controversy the concepts of halakha and aggada were an issue for the first time in the so called First Disputation of Paris in 1240. As the encounter was carefully planned by the Christians they also dealt with the terms Talmud, halakha and aggada before the debate really happened. The paper shows the way this was done and the impact it had on the Jewish side.
