Textual Borrowings in the Talmud Yerushalmi. Many sugyoth are repeated through out the Talmud Yerushalmi, but a handful of them seem forced and read artificially in their new contexts. These appear to be the work of later redactors who still held license to modify the Talmud, yet were reluctant to tamper with it. Following this distinguishing feature through the Talmud Yerushalmi, and isolating the characteristics of this later redactive hand allows us to date other passages in the Talmud Yerushalmi.
