Abaye

Additional Links

(4th century) Orphaned at birth, Abaye was raised by his uncle and teacher, Rabba bar Nahmeni. Abaye's disputes with his colleague Rava—hundreds of which are recorded in the Talmud—epitomize the Talmud's dialectical logic. Abaye served as the principal of the academy in Pumbedita from 333 until his passing.
